The game at Dudley Kingswinford RFC (kick-off 2.15pm) will be the first of three in the tournament for the Welsh side. They meet Italy at Stourbridge RFC on Sunday (kick-off 1.00pm) and then close against France at Castlecroft, Wolverhampton on Wednesday April 11th (kick-off 1.00pm).
Wales were edged out by two points, 24-22, against England last season and have prepared for the tournament by meeting, and beating, Tonmawr U17 and Pembrokeshire U17 in warm-up matches. England, meanwhile, have warmed-up by playing the Worcester and Bath Academies and a Millfield School side.
"This is a very skilfull group of players and they have some great strike runners behind a very strong pack. We've prepared well and everyone is looking forward to the challenge of the tournament," said Wales Team Manager James Savastano.
The Wales U16 A team got off to a flying start in the Millfield International Schools Festival with a 43-0 win over Romania on Tuesday April 3rd. More than 200 players from eight countries are taking part in the Festival and Wales A meet France on Thursday April 5th and Scotland on Saturday April 7th.
