Hinkley is not the only Cherry and White representative in the squad, as Olly Adkins will be hoping to feature off the bench.
“We’ve used a lot of players in the tournament and feel that will be beneficial for us going into the World Rugby U20 Championship in June. We can only take 28 players to the World Rugby U20 Championship and selection is going to be very difficult so for them, every opportunity they have to impress us is an important one” Steve Bates said.
