Nick Isiekwe has been named in the starting line-up for England U18s clash with France in the European Championship.

The teams meet in Blagnac tonight, 6pm kick-off UK time.

Isiekwe, who is a member of Saracens Academy and plays for Old Albanian, is one of 10 changes made to the line-up after England’s 85-5 thrashing of Portugal in their opening fixture. He will start at second row.

“It’s important for us to carry the momentum from the Portugal fixture into the game against France. I thought we showed real positivity to go out there and play like we did,” said head coach John Fletcher.

“France will provide strong opposition tomorrow so we’ll need to continue to improve and to step up another level and I’ve every confidence that the team can do that.”
