FORMER Wootton Bassett junior Jonny May will start for England in their Six Nations opener against France on Saturday.

The Gloucester back has this morning been chosen by coach Stuart Lancaster to start on the wing at the Stade de France, in what will be his second appearance for his country having made his debut in Argentina in June.

May will be cheered on by a packed clubhouse at Bassett's Ballards Ash following their home game with Reading Abbey, having come up through the club's youth system.
