The Reigning World U20 Champions England Under 20s, will continue their quest to regain the 6-Nations title at Franklins Gardens in Northampton on Saturday, when they face Scotland in Round 4 of the 2017 tournament. England who had their worst ever Six Nations campaign in 2016, when they finished in fifth position, with just a solitary victory to their credit, which was against the wooden spooners Italy, have been in rampant form during the 2017 competition. The English youngsters have played and won all three of their fixtures to date, and have collected a try-scoring bonus point in each of those victories.
France were humiliated in Exeter by 59-17 in the opening round, before the reigning Champions Wales were beaten at home by 21-37. Round 3 saw England ease past the Italians by 46-0, and they now lead the table by three points from Ireland, who have also won all three of their matches. Having started the season with a heart breaking single point loss to Ireland, Scotland Under 20s have struggled to overcome that disappointment, and have suffered further losses, to France in Grenoble 8-36 and then to Wales at the Broadwood Stadium 34-65. The Scots currently occupy fifth place in the table with two points, one ahead of the also winless Italians.

The reigning World Junior Champions England Under 20s, made a disappointing start the 2015 Six Nations tournament, slipping to a 15-21 defeat to Wales. However, they have played much more impressively in their two subsequent fixtures, and will go into Friday's match with Scotland at the Northern Echo Arena full of confidence. After the disappointment of the Wales result, the English youngsters bounce back to crush their Italians counterparts in Plymouth by 61-0. Even more impressively, last time out they travelled to Ireland to face an unbeaten team that had its eyes firmly on a first title since 2010, and a possible first ever U20's Grand Slam. However, the Red Rose flowered, and they were much more comfortable winners than the final 19-14 scoreline might suggest.
Friday's opponents Scotland Under 20s, however, also have two wins and a defeat from their opening three fixtures. An opening round hiding by the reigning Champions France, who kept the scots tryless, as they won 47-6, seemed to suggest another miserable season was in the offing. However, consecutive wins at Netherdale against the Welsh by 36-34, and then Italy 45-0, has tied the Scots on four points along with three other teams, separated at the top of the table merely on points difference.

On Friday, the 1st of February, the Under 20 Six Nations will take place between England and Scotland at 17:45 local time and GMT. We are just barely starting the Six Nations competition right now, and nobody has earned a single point yet. However, for the two teams that are playing in this competition this week, they were on polar opposite ends of the Under 20 Six Nations Table. England Under 20s was at the top with eight points last year, tied with two other teams that also got eight points, France and Ireland in second and third.
As for the fourth placed team, that was Wales with four points and then Scotland Under 20s came in at the fifth placed spot with two. The last team on the table was the Italy Under 20s and they did not earn any points.
