FLANKER Ted Hill returns to England’s starting XV for their final pool match in the World Rugby Under 20s Championship against Australia in Argentina on Wednesday (7.30pm).

The Worcester Warriors player started in England’s defeat by Ireland last week but missed the narrow victory over Italy on Saturday due to illness.

He is one of seven changes to the squad for the match in Santa Fe which includes Warriors loosehead Kai Owen being named among the replacements.

Head coach Steve Bates said: “This is a big fixture for us and the players know we need to raise the level and pace of our game against a good Australia side.

“We always enjoy matches against southern hemisphere opposition, it’s not often these players get the opportunity to face the likes of Australia or New Zealand and they are very excited about that.

“The players feel like they haven’t played their best rugby yet in this competition and the challenge for them is to play with a bit more continuity in the game. We trained very well yesterday with that in mind and I’m hoping to see an exciting performance from us on Wednesday.”

England Under 20s: de Glanville, Sleightholme, Dingwall, Redpath, Hodge; Vunipola, Maunder; Kenny, Capon, Heyes, Kpoku, Capstick, Hill, Hinkley, Tuima.

Replacements: Dolly, Adkins, Petch, Owen, Coles, Willis, Fox, Doherty, James, Seabrook.
