Armitage gets England Under-20 call

London Irish centre Guy Armitage - younger brother of senior internationals Delon and Steffon - has been named in this season's England Under-20 squad.

Rob Hunter, England Under-20 head coach, has called up Armitage and Northampton hooker Mike Haywood in a revised 32-man group.

The squad also includes powerful 19-year-old Leicester centre Manu Tuilagi and Saracens fly-half Owen Farrell.

England launch their Under-20 Six Nations campaign against Wales in Llanelli on February 5 before hosting Italy, France and Scotland and then concluding the tournament by facing Ireland in Athlone.
