Luke James Selected for England U20s

3 months ago By

Ex-MRC and M&J player Luke James has been named in England U20s side to face the Junior Springboks on Friday at Worcester’s Sixways Stadium.

The fixture is crucial preparation ahead of the World Rugby U20 Championship in France (30 May – 17 June).

“Playing South Africa is really going to focus everyone’s attention before the World Rugby U20 Championship and will provide us with valuable playing time before the tournament begins," said Head Coach, Steve Bates.

“This fixture also gives us an opportunity to finalise our squad for the tournament in France as well as get the players together to start preparing for the challenges ahead.

“During the Six Nations we played well in patches and now the aim for us is to turn up the heat and play at a consistently high level.”

Congratulations on your selection Luke - we appreciate your support at Grove Park and will be supporting you on Friday and hopefully onto the World Rugby U20 Championship.
