Back-row Ollie Cooper-Millar, hooker Brett McNamee and scrum-half Stefan Liebenberg have all been selected for the international fixture.

The call-up is a first for Cooper-Millar, whilst McNamee and Liebenberg both have prior experience with the England Counties side.

The match is taking place at Darlington Mowden Park’s Northern Echo Arena with kick-off at 7.30pm.

Copper-Millar’s cousin, Scarlett Cooper-Wall, will also be suiting up for her country this weekend. The former OAs player who currently plys her trade at Loughborough is in the U20s’ starting line-up to face France at Esher on Saturday.
