Your News England U20 star Kvesic ready for French test

England U20 flanker Matt Kvesic has played his part in Worcesters Championship topping success this season, and the 19-year-old wants to use his home advantage when Rob Hunters England U20 side take on France at Sixways this Sunday, kick off 3.15pm.

Much like the seniors, England U20 put their unbeaten record on the line in Worcester and after victories against Wales and Italy in their opening games, Kvesic is keen to build on what he still sees as a work in progress.

Weve got to take confidence from what weve done in the opening two games of the 6 Nations. We had a lot to work on after the Wales game but we worked hard and put a strong performance in against Italy. Were hoping to build on what weve done and go full steam ahead into the France match.

With the France game available to view live on Sky Sports 3 (red button), Kvesic wants to keep pushing the England U20 brand to a wider audience on a day where both the England Women and the Women U20 are also in action against their French counterparts.

I think its great that Worcester is hosting three matches on Sunday, its obviously my home club and my home ground and it will be a great day for rugby. Its not often you can watch international rugby from 11am right through until 4pm so Im excited and hopefully the crowds will pour in and support us.

The France game will be completely difference to the Italy match, but weve had a look at them, well get a good weeks training behind us and hopefully head into the game full of confidence.

Every French side at every level is strong. We know that we can only play whats in front of us, it will be 15 against 15 and were confident of producing. If we back ourselves and have faith in our own game plan then Im sure well come through fine. If we worry about them then that will disrupt our preparation.

Kvesics Worcester teammate and current housemate Andy Short is another one of Englands young guns currently firing on all cylinders. The 19-year-old wing touched down four times during Englands 11 try rout of Italy, something Kvesic claims, in jest, has gone to his head.

Weve had to widen the front door to get his head through it hes been a nightmare, I havent heard the last of it. To be fair to him he did really well and I was delighted for him, I just hope that he can do the same when we take on France!

Tickets for the England U20 match can be purchased from the Worcester Warriors ticket office for as little as 10 for adults by calling on 01905 454 183.
