The Men’s Pathway team take on the Championship outfit this Saturday (25 May, 15:00 BST kick-off) in preparation for the upcoming 2024 World Rugby U20 Championship in South Africa. The uncapped fixture will be streamed live via the England Rugby YouTube channel.  

Logan, who previously trained with Scotland at the Under-17 level, donned the English rose during last year’s Under-18 Six Nations Festival. This weekend, he takes a significant step forward by starting for the Under-20s.

His father, Kenny Logan, a celebrated figure at Wasps, faced the end of his club’s era and transitioned to Northampton Saints. However, Reuben’s choice to represent a different national team was a more complex decision.

“It was an interesting conversation,” said Logan, recalling the moment he informed his dad of his choice.

“He realised I’ve got to do what’s best for me. He was a bit hurt at the start, but I explained that it was not his career anymore and he said fair play.

“He’s been really supportive, really helpful. He used to drive me up and down to Northampton, to Henley, and to England camps, so he’s been really helpful in my development.”

There was a third option, courtesy of mum and television icon Gabby, who represented Wales in the Commonwealth Games, but the 18-year-old was encouraged to come to his own conclusions.

“I didn’t really know when I was younger,” said Logan, who attended school and lives in the south-east of England. “When I got older, I realised that was the avenue I wanted to go down.

“Dad said do what’s best for you, which I really appreciated.

“They both want me to play well and play good rugby, so whatever crest is on my shirt, hopefully they’ll be proud of me.”

The England U20 side continue their summer schedule with a two-Test tour in Georgia next month, facing their U20 counterparts on 7 and 12 June at the Avchala Stadium.

The 33-man England Squad Steve Borthwick Should Select For Summer Tour

It’s been a decade since England’s last visit to New Zealand, a challenging 2014 series under Stuart Lancaster resulting in a 3-0 defeat.

The memories of the 2008 tour aren’t any sweeter, with England tasting defeat in both Tests against the All Blacks. However, a glimmer of triumph emerged in 2003, as they secured a thrilling 15-13 victory over New Zealand just before the Rugby World Cup.

In this highly anticipated tour, Borthwick’s squad will face a formidable challenge with only two tests against the All Blacks, following a clash with Japan in Tokyo.

Here is the list of our predicted squad organised by their current clubs:

RUCK’s England squad for the summer:


  • Joe Marler
  • Fin Baxter
  • Chandler Cunningham-South
  • Marcus Smith

Bristol Bears

  • Ellis Genge
  • Harry Randall
  • Gabriel Ibitoye


  • Jamie George
  • Theo Dan
  • Maro Itoje
  • Ben Earl
  • Elliot Daly
