Newcastle Falcons had four players featuring at England age-grade level over the weekend.

Hooker Jacob Oliver started for England Under-19s in their 24-21 loss to France on Saturday with club-mate and prop-forward Isaac Keller making a cameo from the bench at Doncaster Knights’ Castle Park.

Back-five forward Patrick Hogg started and scored a try for England Under-18s, with prop-forward Sam Graham appearing from the bench.

England U18s secured a dramatic last-minute victory, where they edged Wales U19s 36-35 in Parma, Italy.
