NEXT UP | International rugby at StoneX!
StoneX Stadium will host international rugby on Saturday, when England U20 will be hoping to stop Ireland’s bid for a Six Nations Grand Slam.
The Irish have already beaten Wales, France and Italy and scored 109 points and 14 tries in doing so. They have only conceded 33 points and three tries in return.
Even though they are flying high, a win for England could take them to the top of the table. Saracens back row men Toby Knight and Alex Wardell have featured strongly to date. Knight had the honour of leading the side in their win over Scotland in Edinburgh and has been an ever-present to date. Wardell played in the win over the Scots and in the 6-0 defeat in Italy.
Tickets for the game are still available and a big crowd is expected. The game will kick-off at 7.15pn and will follow on from the senior Six Nations game at Twickenham. That game starts at 4.45pm.
