Callum Braley will captain England Under 20s in the 2014 Junior World Championship in New Zealand.

England coaches Nick Walshe and Ian Peel have named a squad which includes seven players with previous JWC experience as they look to defend the title they won last June. England start their campaign against Italy on June 2 and then face Australia and Argentina.

Head coach Walshe said: "We're pleased with the balance and experience in this squad, and we are confident that they will perform well in each of our five matches. While England U20 are the holders of the trophy, this group hasn't won anything - we enjoyed a successful Six Nations, and while it was disappointing not to win it, as a group we came on hugely. The key is to keep building on that momentum."
