England U20s Head Coach Mark Mapletoft has named his side to take on Samoa in their final Pool B group match. Three Gloucester Rugby players are in the starting line up and two more on the bench.
In all, England make eight changes to the team that started the 30-7 win over Scotland.
Wing George Lowe (Harlequins), fly half Rory Clegg (Newcastle Falcons) and scrum half Ben Youngs (Leicester Tigers) return in the backline.
James Clark (London Irish) makes his first start of the tournament at hooker, with prop Bob Baker (London Wasps), lock Dan Williams (Gloucester Rugby) and No.8 Carl Fearns (Sale Sharks) drafted into the pack.
Charlie Sharples and Henry Trinder retain their places in the backline whilst Shaun Knight and Dave Lewis are named amongst the replacements.
A win would put second seeds England into the Tokyo semi finals to meet the winner of tomorrow's South Africa v France game in Osaka.
