Following trials during the Lent Term, Joe Bridger (c) gained selection for the England Independent Schools U18s, known as The Lambs XV. After successful games against Crawshays Welsh U18s and Ireland Exiles U18s, Joe was part of the squad that toured Italy over the Easter holiday, where they defeated Lazio U19s (59 – 7) Castelli U20 (54 – 0) and then an Italy U20 select XV (12 – 5).
Will Homer (m) gained his full England U16 Cap after coming on as substitute in the 31 - 20 win against Italy U17s in Parma. In another match, he also started on the bench against Wales U16s at Wellington College and came on with 15 minutes remaining and helped England to a narrow 39 - 34 victory.
