Barré moves to fly-half for clash with England

Leo Barré

Léo Barré will start at fly-half for France as one of five changes to the side to take on England in the Six Nations Under-20s finale in Perpignan.

The Stade Français playmaker scored 17 points in the 47-15 win over Wales last time out, playing at full-back, but now slots into the No.10 jersey, with Max Auriac coming into the No.15 spot.

The other change in the backline sees Ethan Randle come in on the wing, with Emilien Gailleton once again captaining the side in the midfield alongside Louis Le Brun.

There are further changes in the pack where props Matis Perchaud and Elliott Yemsi come in after impressing off the bench in the win over Wales.

And Killian Tixeront, who captained the side in the opening win over Italy, comes into the back row alongside Théo Ntamack and Léo Banos.

France currently sit second in the table and need to beat England to retain any hope of winning the title, with Ireland still favourites to top the table as they chase a Grand Slam with a final game against bottom side Scotland.
