“Castle Park is an excellent facility and has hosted England Women with great success and no doubt they’ll do the same with the U20s.

“We’re really pleased the Championship is back to its usual playing window in February and March, in line with the men’s games.

“Many of the lads missed opportunities at U18 level, due to the pandemic, so for some of them this will be their first international experience. I’m sure they’ll enjoy every moment.

“Six Nations did a great job, in really challenging circumstances, to deliver the 2021 championship and we’re looking forward to playing in next year’s tournament.”

Doncaster Knights President Steve Lloyd speaking about the fixture said: “I am delighted that an England U20s game will be played here at Castle Park.

“It is a great honour to host the age-grade side for their game against Wales in the 2022 U20 Six Nations. This will be a great event, not just for our club, but for the town and local area. It is an acknowledgement of the great facilities we have at Castle Park, and we are thrilled to be able to help promote the U20s.”
