Exeter Chiefs' Jack Nowell starts for England U20s
Jack Nowell has been handed a start on the wing as one of four Exeter Chiefs youngsters in the England under-20 side to face Italy tomorrow.
Under-20 head coach Rob Hunter, who joins the Chiefs at the end of the campaign, has rung the changes ahead of his side's fourth Six Nations match of the season.
Nowell is joined in the starting line-up at Northampton's Franklin's Gardens ground by fellow Exeter players Sam Hill, Henry Slade and Luke Cowan-Dickie, who is again named at hooker as he makes the switch from prop.
However, there is no place for Jack Arnott and Joel Conlon, who started the first three matches.

Also coming in for the match against the Azzurri are full-back Ollie Devoto, scrum-half Callum Braley, props Scott Wilson and Danny Hobbs-Awoyemi and flanker David Sisi.
England are coming off the back of a scintillating 40-10 victory against France in Worcester, which followed on from victory in the opening game against Scotland and a narrow 16-15 loss to Ireland.
Nowell said: "I missed the 20s campaign last season through injury so to have this opportunity is one that I'm really looking forward to. I played Italy at under-18 level and they are in your face and physical, but this is a game that we're really looking forward to."
Meanwhile, Chiefs academy prospect Stuart Townsend has retained his place in the England under-18 side to face Wales in Swansea on Sunday.
The scrum-half scored a brace of tries in last weekend’s 57-13 win against Scotland.
Fellow Exeter youngster Luke Chapman has been named on the bench as head coach John Fletcher has made a few changes.
