Falcons duo named in England U18s squad

Saturday 25 March 2023 Written by: Adam

England men’s U18 head coach Jonathan Pendlebury has named his side to play Wales U18 tomorrow at Swansea Rugby Football Club.

The Wales fixture follows a close match against France at Esher Rugby Football Club last weekend, from which Pendlebury’s squad took invaluable international experience.

Pendlebury said: “Congratulations to every player in the matchday squad on their selection to play Wales, it is one of the truly special international matchups.

“Last week’s end result wasn’t the one we were after, but we were proud of the way the lads wore the rose and that some of the focus areas we have worked on across the season came out through the game. To score four good team tries and create further scoring opportunities in challenging conditions was excellent, we thought.

“Twelve players made their debut against France, and they’ve all gained invaluable international experience that they can now take into their clash with Wales on Sunday.”
