Prince Henry's Grammar School duo Paul Hill and Jack Walker have both been named in the England Under-18s' starting line-up to face Wales tomorrow (3pm) on the second game of their South African tour.

Prop Hill is among six survivors from the 19-14 defeat to South Africa Schools on Friday, while Leeds Carnegie colleague Walker played the fnal 30 minutes of that contest at hooker. Harlequins flanker James Chisholm captains the side.

England under-18s' coach John Fletcher said: “The players have responded well to the loss against the South Africans. They have trained well over the past few days and we will better for the hit-out last Friday.

“Wales had an excellent victory and performance against a good French team and we know that we will have to play at our best to be competitive.

"Our players are hurting after the narrow defeat to South Africa and I am expecting a response from the squad against Wales.”
