Stooke and Moriarty named in England Under-20s squad
Gloucester youngsters Ross Moriarty and Elliott Stooke have been named in the England Under-20s 32-man Elite Player Squad for the season.
Second row Stooke and back rower Moriarty, son of cherry and whites defence coach Paul, have both made first team appearances for Nigel Davies’s side this term.
The news comes hard on the heels of Freddie Burns, Ben Morgan and Billy Twelvetrees' selection in the full England EPS and Shaun Knight, Charlie Sharples and Jonny May in the Saxons.
The pair will be looking to help England defend their Under-20 Six Nations title over the next months before heading to France for the IRB Junior World Championship in June.

England host Scotland on Friday, February 1 at Plymouth Albion RFC before travelling to Dubarry Park in Ireland a week later before welcoming France to Sixways on Saturday February 23.
Italy are the visitors to Franklin’s Gardens on Saturday March 9 before their campaign is rounded off in Wales on Friday, March 15.
Head Coach Rob Hunter has made two changes to his squad with Harlequins centre Harry Sloan and Leicester Tigers wing Henry Purdy coming in.
Hunter said: “We’ve made a couple of changes to the squad and brought in two guys who have been performing consistently well at their club. Both Harry and Henry are talented players and we’re excited to see what they can bring.
“Our focus at the moment is solely on our own preparation and that first Six Nations game against Scotland in Plymouth. They’ve had a warm up game and they’ll be coming at us from the first whistle, but we’ve trained well and we’re looking forward to getting out there on February 1.”
