Charlie Stewart, a past President of the Scottish RFU and former Scotland back-row forward, has died aged 63.

Peter Richards and Lewis Moody, who toured the Southern Hemisphere with England over the summer, have been named in the national under-21 side to face South Africa at Twickenham. Richards, the London Irish scrum-half, and Moody, the Leicester flanker, will feature in the curtain-raiser to Saturday's senior Test between England and the Springboks. The England under-21 line-up will also include Iain Balshaw, the exciting young Bath full-back, and the Sale flanker Alex Sanderson, brother of senior international Pat. Meanwhile, Northampton scrum-half James Bramhall will captain an England Under-21 A side against the South African under-21's at Banbury tonight. The pack includes Pontypool forwards Richard Siveter and Alex Brown, both formerly of Bath, while Toki Adebayo, brother of Bath and England wing Adedayo, is among the replacements.
