- Bedford Blues Under 19s beaten in warm-up
- Ireland Clubs and France A next for England
England Under 18 Clubs and Schools have named a 24-man squad to train at Loughborough University from April 4 to 6 ahead of their forthcoming internationals against Ireland Clubs and France A.
The England squad was selected after a training camp also held at Loughborough University last weekend, which included a match against Bedford Academy Under 19s.
“The coaches worked hard over the weekend and the squad responded magnificently, working very well despite the fact that a lot of the boys had been involved at Rosslyn Park Sevens for most of the previous week,” said John Porter-Griffiths, England Under 18 Clubs and Schools team manager.
“We played Bedford Academy Under 19s as the final part of our first training weekend and the squad certainly did what was requested by the coaches with an intense and physical performance to record a 38-17 victory.”
England Under 18 Clubs and Schools will play two matches in the triangular tournament at the French National Rugby Centre in Marcoussis against Ireland Clubs Under 18s on April 16 and France Under 18 A on April 20.
France play Ireland in the opening match on April 12.
