Heathcote starts in the centre for England Under 20

Bath Rugby's Tom Heathcote will start at inside centre for England Under 20 tomorrow when they take on Italy in the IRB Junior World Championship opener at the University of Western Cape Stadium, Cape Town, kick-off 15.45 (BST), live on Sky Sports 2 HD.

Head Coach Rob Hunter and Assistant Nick Walshe have given first Under 20 starts to Nathan Morris, Ross Harrison, David Sisi and Billy Vunipola, while Chris Walker captains the side for the fifth time.

Five of the matchday squad (Yarde, Robson, Twomey, Mills and Ransom) played in the 2011 competition in Italy and Hunter says that their experience will be key.
