Sevens Saracens representatives will be involved in the IRB Junior World Championship, as England Under 20 take on South Africa on Friday at Eden Park (kick-off 0835am BST, live on Sky Sports).
Saracens Academy lock Maro Itoje will captain the side; he is joined by IRB Junior Player of the Year nominee Nathan Earle in the starting XV. Centre Nick Tomkins also starts, as do full-back Aaron Morris and scrum-half Henry Taylor who have both recently joined the Saracens Senior Academy.
On the bench, tighthead prop Biyi Alo is joined by fellow Saracens Academy star Hayden Thompson-Stringer.
England are competing in their third final in four years, and will be hoping to defend the title they secured in France last season, beating Wales 23-15.
England U20s Head Coach Nick Walshe said: “This is a great opportunity for our guys – they have been excellent all trip and have fully deserved to get to where they are.
“South Africa will be a difficult challenge, but we’re focusing on ourselves – we’re putting a real emphasis on performing for the full 80 minutes, we feel that we have played well in patches throughout the tournament but we want to see a complete performance.”
