Bury St Edmunds have six players in the Eastern Counties squad for the opening RFU National Under-20 Championship group match against Kent at the Haberden on Sunday (2.15pm).

Luke Reinman, Alex Grey, Matthew Branfield and Aaron Forrest are named in the starting line-up, with Will Hudson and Scott Lyall among the replacements.

Counties, captained by Jack Ward (Cambridge), are in four-team group. They take on Herts at Tabard on February 28, and then host Surrey on March 13 at a venue to be decided.

Winning the group, or finishing runners-up, would take Counties through to the quarter-finals. The final is at Twickenham on May 7.
