From that Hartpury match and the previous Sunday's opening Regional game at Lymm RFC, also against the tourists, the U19 England Academies team will be selected to play the visitors in their final tour match at Cinderford RFC on Saturday (19th), kick-off 2pm.
The sides for both matches will, with one exception, all be drawn from English registered players currently signed to one of the 14 Guinness Premiership clubs and, for many, it will prove to be another stepping stone towards full international honours.
This season has already seen one of last seasons ranks, the 20 year-old lock/flanker Courtney Laws, play for England against Argentina while other top Premiership players who have passed through the Academies ranks and are now banging on England's door include England Saxons squad members Joe Simpson, Jordan Turner-Hall, Alex Goode and Noah Cato.
The former Gloucester, Saracens, NEC Harlequins and London Irish fly-half and England U20 head coach Mark Mapletoft takes charge of the teams for both games as he and his fellow coaches closely scrutinise the contenders for next seasons England U20's squad.
He says: "Wednesday's match is an opportunity to look at the fringe players from last year's U18 team and the current U19's that haven't had a chance to be looked at. It's also more of an opportunity to look at different combinations of players who were playing in the U18's last season.
"It's a strong side we've got out on Wednesday and it'll be really exciting to see the likes of Jonny Harris, who's been playing for Leicester Tigers already this season, Ryan Glynn the Sale Sharks scrum-half who was part of the U18 team last season along with London Irish's Sam Edgerley on the wing, who's a prolific try scorer, in action."
Another Sam, Sam Stanley, is the nephew of All Blacks great Joe while the one unattached player in the squad is Ollie Robinson, son of current Scotland and former England boss Andy.
"There's a real cross-section of players and we're looking forward to seeing them all play together," admits Mapletoft who will have had the comfort of having watched the tourists in action twice prior to Wednesdays encounter.
"They will be well drilled and have good skill levels and will want to play rugby," he sums up. "Of course we are coaching the side to win the game but, also, we'll be looking for some individual performances while also looking at how well they play as a team."
In their opening three games against Irish and Welsh opposition the tourist have won twice but tasted a 15-0 defeat at the hands of Ireland's U19 side and their English age-group counterparts will be eager to dish out an equally unpalatable scoreline next week.
The following Saturdays England Academies line-up will be announced after the Cinderford match that should include the likes of Leicester wonderboy George Ford and Alex Gray last seasons unbeaten England U18 captain.
