The Independent School Lambs have named their North squad to face the Midlands on the 5th January.

The announcement follows last week’s selection of the South East and Midlands squads, which can be seen here, and coincides with the announcement of the South West squad this week (see here).

The North squad includes four Woodhouse Grove players, reflecting their fantastic season, which has seen them win the Daily Mail Trophy with an unbeaten record, and having only lost one game outside of that competition.

It is a bit of a family affair for them, with brothers Daniel and Michael Radigan both earning selection, and the family theme continues for Bradford Grammar School with Charlie Brownlee, brother of Alastair and Johnnie 2012 Olympic triathlon gold and bronze medal winners, gaining selection.

Brownlee is one of three Bradford Grammar School pupils selected, with a further two on standby. Kirkham Grammar School and St Peter’s York both also have three representatives, while Hymers College and Giggleswick have two representatives each.

The North squad faces the Midlands on the 5th January in a trial game for selection to the Northern XV, at the same time the South East XV will play the South West XV in a trial for selection to the Southern XV.

A week later, on the 12th January, the Northern XV will play the Southern XV in a game that will act as a trial for selection to the National Squad. The National squad will then play a series of fixtures before their tour of Zimbabwe on the 4th April.
