Six Nations CEOBen Morel commented: “The Under-20s is a hugely enjoyable competition for everyone involved.

“It’s first and foremost a fantastic opportunity for the most promising young players in Europe to represent their country.

“It is also incredibly popular with fans, both those attending live and those watching on TV and that’s down to the quality of rugby and particularly the skill levels we see in every match.

“We look forward to another brilliant U20s Championship in 2020.”
