England Saxons Name Exciting Team To Face South Africa ‘A’

South Africa A v England Saxons

After beating the Springboks last weekend, the England Saxons will be looking to finish the two match series with another win. 

Despite claiming an impressive 32-24 win over South Africa ‘A’ last weekend, England Saxons coach, Ali Hepher, has made two changes to his starting XV.

After starting from the bench during the first test, Christian Wade has been named in the England Saxons team for Friday night’s clash, replacing the injured Alex Lewington. The Wasps winger has enjoyed a stunning season, and could have possibly travelled with the senior squad to Australia.

Dave Ewers comes into a reshuffled backrow that sees Don Armand move to eight and Matt Kvesic start at openside.

The backline once more sees Dan Robson partner Danny Cipriani at half back, and Ollie Devoto and Nick Tompkins named in midfield. Finally, Semesa Rokoduguni and Mike Haley partner Wade in the back three.
