RT @cricket_bgs: Well done to the girls 1st XI who won by 3 wickets this afternoon a 52* from skipper Daniels leading them home @BGS_Sport…
It was a proud day for Bristol Grammar School on Sunday (5 March) when not one but two BGS rugby players were selected for the England U18 team that faced France at Aylesbury Rugby Football Club. The boys, Will (L6) and Tom (U6), were both in the starting fifteen, playing side-by-side in the front row at hooker and loose head prop respectively.
Will had previously represented England, captaining the U16 side against Wales last April; for Tom it was his first game in an England shirt. The pair put in impressive performances against France, particularly in the set piece. By the time they were substituted in the second half, England were well on their way to a deserved 43–14 victory.
The pair will have further opportunities to impress, with Will included in the squad for this Sunday’s game against Scotland U18 in Preston, and Will and Tom in the squad to face Wales on Sunday 26 March. Both are hoping to be selected for this summer’s England U18 Tour of South Africa. The whole of the BGS community congratulates Will and Tom on their impressive achievements so far and wish them the best of luck in the future.
