England have named an unchanged XV for their Junior World Championship final against South Africa on Friday.

Maro Itoje continues as skipper with tour captain Callum Braley named on England's bench. There is one change on the bench with Biyi Alo replacing Harry Rudkin.

This is England's third final in four years and they will hope to secure back-to-back titles having beaten Wales in France last year.

"This is a great opportunity for our guys - they have been excellent all trip and have fully deserved to get to where they are," England coach Nick Walshe said. "South Africa will be a difficult challenge, but we're focusing on ourselves - we're putting a real emphasis on performing for the full 80 minutes, we feel that we have played well in patches throughout the tournament but we want to see a complete performance."

England U20: Aaron Morris (Bedford Blues), Howard Packman (Northampton Saints), Nick Tompkins (Saracens), Harry Sloan (Harlequins), Nathan Earle (Saracens), Billy Burns (Gloucester Rugby), Henry Taylor (Loughborough University), Danny Hobbs-Awoyemi (Northampton Saints), Tom Woolstencroft (Bath Rugby), Paul Hill (Leeds Carnegie), Maro Itoje (Saracens, captain), Charlie Ewels (Bath Rugby), Ross Moriarty (Gloucester Rugby), Gus Jones (London Wasps), James Chisholm (Harlequins)

Replacements: Jack Walker (Leeds Carnegie), Alex Lundberg (London Wasps), Biyi Alo (Saracens), Hayden Thompson-Stringer (Saracens), Joel Conlon (Exeter Chiefs), Callum Braley (Bristol Rugby), Sam Olver (Northampton Saints), Henry Purdy (Leicester Rugby)
