The South West Under 18s squad for the Divisional Festival at Broadstreet RFC in Coventry in January has been announced.
The squad of 26 players are well represented across all the South West Constituency Bodies, but Gloucestershire field the most players with seven selected.
The South West side will play the North on January 2nd and if they win they will play the winners of the London & South East and Midlands clash on January 4th. If they lose they will play the losers of the London & South East and Midlands game on January 4th also.
The Divisional Festival is an important part of the Under 18s programme as it is used as a selection tool for the England Under 18s teams.
