Two of Gloucester's talented youngsters will be in more international action for England over the next few weeks.
19 year-old full-back Olly Morgan continues in the England U21s squad, after a try-scoring appearance in the win over Italy last week.
Ryan Lamb has been playing scrum-half this season for England U19s and grabbed two tries for his age group in last week's win. The 18 year-old half-back has been named in the England U19 squad for the World Cup at the end of the month.
The official website rounds up the news from both the U21s and U19s camps.
England's U21 coaches Jim Mallinder and Nigel Redman have named a 26-man training squad for their final match of the 2005 U21 Six Nations against Scotland on Friday (18 Mar, Franklin's Gardens, kick off 7.30pm).
Mallinder was pleased with the side's performance in their last game against Italy. The 31-14 win over the young Azzuri followed their 28-6 win over Ireland in Dublin two weeks ago.
He said: "We are improving all the time. We know Scotland are a good strong side and we are looking forward to the challenge."
