Hampshire's ex-Winchester and now Harlequins centre Joe Marchant has withdrawn from England squad for next month's U20s Championship in Italy due to injury writes Brian Seeney.


England U20 Head Coach Jon Callard said: "It is unfortunate especially as Joe only picked up his injury last weekend when playing for Quins against Newcastle."


But Hampshire's ex-Gosport & Fareham Colt Joe Batley (now Gloucester Rugby) is in the squad that flies to Italy next Thursday (28th May) where they play Japan (June 2, 5.30pm BST), Wales (June 6, 7.30pm BST) and France (June 10, 3.30pm BST) in the pool stages.
