Kenny Murray has handed Jerry Blyth-Lafferty his first start of the U20 Six Nations in place of the injured Elliot Young ahead of Friday night’s clash with England.

He’s one of just two changes to the team that pushed France all the way last time out with Ewan McVie coming back into the second row to partner Ruaraidh Hart, who made his Glasgow Warriors debut last week.

Robbie Deans and Callum Norrie continue in the front row alongside Blyth-Lafferty, who scored a try in that defeat to France. McVie and Hart make up the second row with the same back row of captain Liam McConnell, Jonny Morris and Freddy Douglas.

Murdoch Lock and Isaac Coates continue in the half backs with Geordie Gwynn and Kerr Yule playing in the centre, and the back three of Amena Caqusau, Kerr Johnston and Fergus Watson continues once again.

There is some newcomers on the bench with Pontypridd’s Gavin Perry added to the match day 23 as part of a 5-3 split among the replacements. Callum Smyth, Ryan Whitefield, Ryan Burke and Tom Currie are also there while Eric Davey, Jack Hocking and Johnny Ventisei cover the backs.

And Murray said: “After the first fallow week, the team are ready to get going again.

“We came back fighting in the second half against France two weeks ago, but we must play that way consistently if we want to be on the right side of the result against England, who will no doubt bring a very physical performance.

“We are excited to get back out in front of a home crowd for our final home game of the tournament.”
