Four Bath Rugby players in England Under 18 squad

7 March 2013

Four potential future Bath Rugby stars have been selected for the England Under 18s squad for their next game against Wales on Sunday at Swansea RFC, kick-off 14:30.

Coaches John Fletcher, Pete Walton and Ian Peel have selected Tom Ellis and Charlie Ewels to partner in the second row and David Buck in the inside centre shirt, whilst hooker Tom Woolstencroft could feature from the bench.

England's January 1st side enjoyed a good run out against Scotland last week, scoring nine-tries in their 57-13 win in Darlington, and nine members of that matchday squad are in line to face Wales.

Head Coach Fletcher said: "Playing Wales in Wales is always a challenge but it's one we're looking forward to. This is our September 1st team so we've been able to bring a few more experienced players into the match day squad for this game and we're looking forward to seeing how they get on."
