England Under-20s head coach Nick Walshe has made four changes to his line-up for Sunday's clash with South Africa at the IRB Junior World Championship.

England opened their campaign with a 30-6 victory over hosts France, however they face a much-tougher encounter against the Baby Boks, live on Sky Sports 4 HD, kick off 3.45pm.

Winger Jack Nowell, scrum half Alex Day, prop Danny Hobbs-Awoyemi and flanker Ross Moriarty all come into the side for the crucial Pool A clash against the defending champions, who thumped the USA 97-0 in their opening match,

Walshe said: "They are a quality side - they obviously played well in their opening game against the USA, winning 97-0, so we're under no illusions. They are big and they are physical and it'll be a really good Test match.

"We had a tough game against France, but the guys have recovered well, they have trained well and we just can't wait to get out there.

"There's obviously a balance between focusing on ourselves and focusing on the opposition, but we're a good side and if we perform like I know we can then the result will take care of itself."

England Under-20s: 15 Anthony Watson, 14 Ben Howard, 13 Harry Sloan, 12 Sam Hill, 11 Jack Nowell, 10 Henry Slade, 9 Alex Day, 1 Danny Hobbs-Awoyemi, 2 Luke Cowan Dickie, 3 Scott Wilson, 4 Elliott Stooke, 5 Dominic Barrow, 6 Ross Moriarty, 7 Matt Hankin, 8 Jack Clifford (capt).
Replacements: 16 Scott Spurling, 17 Alec Hepburn, 18 Tom Smallbone, 19 Tom Price, 20 Joel Conlon, 21 Callum Braley, 22 Ollie Devoto, 23 Henry Purdy.
