Former North Walsham player Calum Green is set to receive his second cap for England Under-20s against Scotland tonight.
The Norwich-born lock, 19, has been recalled to the England starting line-up for the match at Firhill, Glasgow, which kicks off at 7pm.
Green made his Guinness premiership debut for Leicester Tigers last season and more recently he starred in their 35-19 win against London Irish last weekend.
The former Heartsease High School pupil had shown interest in rugby as a four-year-old, after going to watch his father, Michael, play for Crusaders.
He started out with Norwich Minis before later joining Walsham, where he was noticed by Leicester.
He has taken vast steps since, being made captain of the Leicester Tigers Academy team, and representing England at Under-16A level. He was offered a two-year contract and has made four appearances in the Guinness Premiership this season. He made his England U20s debut on February 5 against Wales.
