Coach Lewis rewards form to face England.

WALES U19 head coach Geraint Lewis has rewarded form and named his strongest side possible for tomorrow's clash against England at Bridgend RFC (2pm, live on S4C).

There are four changes to the pack which started the second game against Japan High Schools last week, one newcomer in the backline with a positional switch as well.

In the engine room, prop Garyn Phillips and hooker Cameron Lewis replace Dylan Bartlett and Dom Booth, while Olly White comes in for Max Ayling at lock and Ioan R Davies starts on the flank in place of Benji Hope.

Wales Sevens youngster Jay Jones starts on the wing while Harri Doel switches to full-back.

"The selection for England reflects the performances from the two games against Japan High Schools, where we recorded two high-scoring victories," explained Lewis.

Wales U19: H Doel (Scarlets); L Gilliland (Exiles), J Roberts (Scarlets, c), O Knott (Scarlets), J Jones (Wales 7s); J Thomas (Dragons), D Land (Scarlets); G Phillips (Cardiff Blues), C Lewis (Cardiff Blues), L Yendle (Dragons), O White (Exiles), J Fender (Ospreys), I R Davies (Cardiff Blues), G Bradley (Exiles), M Strong (Ospreys). Reps: D Booth (Scarlets), D Bartlett (Dragons), A Thomas (Scarlets), M Ayling (Dragons), B Hoppe (Dragons), E Bevan (Exiles), E Lloyd (Dragons), D James (Scarlets).
