It's a crunch game at the top of the table with Ireland tied on 10 points at the top of the table with England.

Ireland have a much stronger points difference, so they sit in 1st place. A win over England would be decisive in Ireland's hopes of claiming another title to add to their 2019 Grand Slam.

Who's playing for Ireland?

Coach Richie Murphy has made two changes to the team that comfortably beat Wales in their last game.

Both props have been swapped out, with loosehead Jack Boyle and tighthead Mark Donnelly dropping to the bench for Temi Lasisi and Sam Illo respectively. Illo was on the scoresheet in round one, scoring one of Ireland's six tries against Scotland.

The game against England will comfortably be Ireland's toughest test yet in the U20 Six Nations, but if they come through, hopes will be high that the Six Nations crown is coming back to Ireland once more.
