Academy

U23s name strong side to face Combined Services

Ealing Trailfinders have selected an exciting mix of young talent from the Championship, Development and Academy Squads to take on the Combined Services this Sunday at Old Merchant Taylor’s RFC.

USA U20 Fly Half Will Magie skippers the side, with England U18 2nd Row George Sandford leading a pack containing England Students Jordan Saunders and Jack Pattinson. England U16 Scrum Half Simon Sexton and Ireland U18 Centre Matt Killeen complete the International experience.

Academy skipper Will Day follows up his two games with the senior Amateur 1st XV with selection and he is joined in the match day squad by fellow Emerging Players Oscar Avis, Tyler Bush, Marcus Lowe, Pat Nash and Academy top try scorer Louis Walker.

Many of the side took part in last weeks Development Squad victory over Bridgend Ravens at Vallis Way, and are keen to continue their recent unbeaten run but are well aware of the challenge ahead.

Academy back row forward Tyler Bush follows up his selection for London & South East Division U18 with a starting spot alongside fellow Academy Emerging Player Marcus Lowe.

All support will be greatly appreciated for the 14:15 kick off at OMT Rugby Club, War Memorial Sports Ground, Sandy Lodge Lane, HA6 2HT.
