Five players from the Exeter Chiefs academy have been picked in the England Under-18s side to face Australia A Schools in Sydney on Wednesday.

Prop Luke Cowan-Dickie, centre Sam Hill and full-back Jack Nowell, who is playing for Plymouth Albion as a dual registration player, will all start.

Centre Sam Jones and fly-half Henry Slade are also on the bench.

The match is a final warm-up for England ahead of their test against Australia Schools on Sunday.

It is the second match on a three-game tour for the England side.

They beat an invitational Australia U19 team 19-8 in their opening game.
