Angus Guy, captain of the U19 side, said: "The whole squad is really excited about the upcoming tournament in the Netherlands. We have trained really hard all winter and it’s all been geared up to the qualifier - from working on technical areas with the coaches to working with the team psychologist to improving fitness.
"Even the guys who haven’t made the final squad have contributed massively by providing competition for places which made picking the 14 very tough.
"It’s a massive privilege to be handed the captaincy for such a big event and it’s a great group to lead and I know I’ll have plenty of support. We have a really strong balanced team with a good amount of options in every department which is ideal for me as captain.
“We all just can't wait to get started."
