FORMER Crediton youngster Sam Hill has retained his place the England under-20s squad.

Centre Hill, 19, has been included in the 32-man squad preparing for the Under-20 Six Nations, which begins with a match against Scotland on Friday, February 1 in Plymouth.

Meanwhile, former Blundell's School pupil Matt Kvesic has been named in the England Saxons squad.

And Worcester forwards coach Nigel Redman thinks the 20-year-old could earn a spot on England's summer tour.

"I think the Saxons is a stepping stone for Matt Kvesic," said Redman. "He is 20 years old and has played exceptionally well.

"His performance against Leicester Tigers was absolutely wonderful — I felt he should have been man-of-the-match — and I think he can build on it.

"He has come through the academy and has been here a long time. For Matt Kvesic, there is the Six Nations as well as the England tour at the end of the season, so there is a lot to aim for."
