HARTPURY College in Gloucestershire will host this season’s International Triangular Festival between March 28 and April 4.

England Counties Under 18s will face Irish Clubs Under 18s and a France Under 18s team selected from the best players in their regional academies during the week-long tournament.

Hartpury College play in National League One but the excellent facilities on the campus are also used as a training base for Aviva Premiership club Gloucester.

The International Triangular Festival will start on March 28 when England Counties Under 18s face France in a match that will kick off after Hartpury College’s home league fixture against Loughborough University.

Irish Clubs and France will meet at Hartpury on April 1 (2pm) with England Counties Under 18s hosting Irish Clubs in the festival finale on April 4 (11am).

There will also be a festival dinner on April 1 which will be held at Kingsholm, home of Gloucester and a venue for this year’s Rugby World Cup.

The England Counties Under 18 squad will be selected after the Divisional Festival at Loughborough University from February 20 to 22.
