Your News London & South East name U18 squad for festival

The London & South East Under 18 selectors have named a squad of 23 players for the Divisional Festival at Broadstreet RFC near Coventry this weekend.

They will face the Midlands on Friday February 17 at 2pm, followed by the North taking on the South West at 5pm.

London & South East will play the South West on Sunday February 19 at 1pm, preceded by Midlands v North at 11am.

The festival will allow the England U18s Clubs and Schools management team to select their squad for the training camps and matches with the Northampton Saints and Leicester Tigers Academies that lead into April’s first-ever home international, when England U18 Clubs and Schools will meet Ireland Under 18 Clubs at Old Merchant Taylors’ RFC.

The England U18 Clubs and Schools programme was introduced last season to reward players who have advanced within their Constituent Bodies. It ensures talented players are kept on the international radar while continuing to pursue academic and career interests.

The 2011 squad took on Ireland U18 Clubs in Dublin and came back from 17-0 down at half time to draw 23-23.

England U18 Clubs and Schools head coach Dave Reed said: "There is so much talent in the Under 18 age group.

“I’m really looking forward to the Divisional Festival and the chance to select a squad which, thanks to the exciting programme of training weekends and matches, will be well prepared for their international challenge.”
