The squad travels to Russia for games against Russia U20 on the 5th and 8th of June. Team Manager Peter Vernon has selected a squad of 23 for the two game tour, and speaking on the selection, he said: 

“Every year it’s difficult to pick 23 players from such a talented group but we’re confident in the selection process and the coaching team are feeling confident in this squad. We know the side will be tested by a strong Russia U20 team but we’re excited by the challenge and believe we can go there and win.” 

The squad was selected following the U20 County Championships, with a final selection day taking place at Moseley RFC last week following divisional matches at the start of May. 

Fifteen counties are represented in the squad, with a number of star names from the recent schools rugby past, including the likes of Connor Wilkinson (Lancashire), Ben Pointon (East Midlands), and James Neal (Warwickshire).
