Three Bath Rugby Academy players have been included in the England Under 18s squad to take on Australia Schools on Wednesday, 4th December, kick-off 13.00.
Senior Academy lock Charlie Ewels is included in the forwards, with centre Max Clark and fly-half Rory Jennings, both members of Bath's U18's Elite Player Development Group, named amongst the backs.
Head Coach John Fletcher has selected a strong squad for the game and is looking forward to taking on southern hemisphere opposition.
He said: "This is a great opportunity to test ourselves against a side that we know will want to play an attacking style of rugby.
"The squad is a good blend of experience and youth. There are players who won the FIRA/AER European Championship last April, players who toured South Africa in the summer and some younger players who we are looking to bring through.
"We'll work closely with the England Under 20s management – Nick Walshe and Ian Peel – as there are players involved who will be in their thoughts, and it also gives them the opportunity to take a look at the next crop in a competitive game."
