Otley prop Paul Hill is set to be fit for England's International Rugby Board's Under-20 World Championship semi-final in New Zealand on Sunday.

The Leeds Carnegie loanee left the field with an injury after 73 minutes of Tuesday's 17-16 Group B match victory against Argentina at QBE Stadium in Auckland.

But it is not expected to keep Hill out of the match against Ireland at another QBE Stadium in North Harbour this weekend.

Hill's clubmate Jack Walker started the contest against Argentina and was replaced after 55 minutes by Gus Jones of London Wasps.
