Ben Spencer Selected for England Tour

2 weeks ago By www.manchesterrugby.co.uk

England head coach Eddie Jones has named ex-MRC M&J Ben Spencer in a 34-man squad to tour South Africa for a three-Test series in June.

The RFU website introduces Ben as one of England's new recruits:

Since making his Aviva Premiership debut against Wasps at Twickenham in September 2011, Ben Spencer has amassed over 100 appearances for Saracens, including featuring in the 2017 Champions Cup triumph in Edinburgh.

The 25-year-old is quick off the mark, and is supremely accurate from the boot, a skill he shares with stablemate Richard Wigglesworth. These attributes, coupled with fine form saw him represent England U20s at the 2012 World Rugby U20 Championship, and England Saxons later that year.

His first England U20 appearances were off the bench for Dan Robson against France at Vannes and Ireland at Adams Park in 2012 and he played in four of the five matches that followed in the then IRB Junior World Championship in South Africa.

All at Manchester Rugby Club offer their congratulations to Ben and wish him every success during next month's tour and in his international career.
