- George Ford and Matt Kvesic discuss their first England camp with RFUtv
- New England Saxons pair talk past, present and future
George Ford and Matt Kvesic are among the country’s brightest prospects, having starred for England’s age-grade sides and being rewarded for encouraging seasons in the Aviva Premiership with a place in the England Saxons Elite Player Squad.
Leicester Tigers fly half Ford, 19, and Worcester Warriors back row Kvesic, 20, experienced a senior England training camp for the first time in this summer, so RFUtv sat down with the pair for a perspective on the Loughborough meet through their eyes.
Topics on the agenda included: the gruelling England Rugby Fitness Test; their early appreciation of England’s defensive principles and attacking shape; a place in Saxons EPS as recognition of their place among the top five English players in their position in the country; the surge of Under 20 graduates to the senior set-up; how international age-grade rugby has helped their rapid development; and their short-term goals and expectations for the start of the season.
