Team Bath BUCS Super Rugby player Max Ojomoh named in England Rugby starting XV for U20 Six Nations visit to France

University of Bath student Max Ojomoh is one of nine players set to make their England Rugby U20s debut this weekend as the 2020 Six Nations tournament gets under way.

Ojomoh, a first-year Business Administration student who is supported by the Team Bath Dual Career programme, will start at centre for the Roses when they take on back-to-back World Rugby U20 Champions France in Grenoble on Saturday (8pm GMT).

The Team Bath BUCS Super Rugby player, a member of the Bath Rugby Academy, has previously represented England at U18 level.

England Rugby U20s Head Coach Alan Dickens said: “I’ve coached teams to play in France before and this will be a great experience for the players. It is usually a hostile atmosphere, they are hugely patriotic when it comes to rugby, and we are expecting no different in Grenoble.

“We need to have the ability to adapt, games of rugby are won by the team that can tactically adapt during the 80 minutes and that has been a big focus for us.

“Ultimately though you always have to go back to why we play rugby and that is for enjoyment and I want the players to remember that on Saturday night. If we enjoy it, get our processes right we will get the result.”
