FORMER Henley Hawks prop Alec Hepburn has been included in England’s 36-man squad ahead of their NatWest 6 Nations opener against Italy in Rome on Sunday.

The Exeter Chiefs front-row forward keeps his place after last week’s training camp in Portugal.

Hepburn attended Henley College, captained Oxfordshire U17s and played for London Welsh during their spell in Oxford.

Meanwhile, Hawks’ Joe Morris is named in England’s U20s 6 Nations team.

The hooker, who also studies at Oxford University, is contracted to Worcester Warriors and dual-registered with Henley.

England begin their U20s campaign against Italy on Friday.
