The ISRFC Lambs have named their 2016 National Squad. The 36 man squad represent 28 different schools and are first in action on Sunday against Irish Exiles U18.


The 36-man squad was selected following Sunday’s Northern Lambs v Southern Lambs fixture at Loughborough University, the South won the game 36-17.


The highlight for the squad is their Easter tour of Argentina, which departs of the 25th March and will include fixtures against Uruguay U18, Chile U18, a Buenos Aires Select XV (which will be akin to an Argentina U18 side), and another fixture, which is yet to be confirmed.


Before that though, there are a number of ‘warm up’ games for the Lambs, including tough fixtures against Northampton Saints U17, Saracens U17, Boys Club of Wales, RFU Midlands U18, and Crawshay’s Welsh.


The first of those games is against Irish Exiles U18 on at Moseley RFC on Sunday at 14.00, for which the following team has been selected:


15 Will Hughes (Berkhamsted), 14 Harry Sagar (Bradford Grammar), 13 jacob Weightman (Durham), 12 Will Vaughan (Pangbourne College), 11 Daniel Hubble (Truro), 10 George Hitchcock (Felsted), 9 Charles Guthrie (Yarm); 1 Nick Atkinson (Giggleswick, captain), 2 Jack Starkey (Queen Ethelburga’s), 3 Ben Parker (RGS Newcastle), 4 Alec Hampden-Smith (Mount Kelly), 5 Reece McCarthy (Trinity), 6 Henry Wills (Stamford), 7 Samuel Bloomer (Churcher’s College), 8 Sam Hudson (St Peter’s, York).

Replacements: 16 Charlie Bannister (Canford), 17 Oliver Short (Wisbech Grammar), 18 Daniel Ali (Cheltenham College), 19 Harry Johnson (Ashville College), 20 George Cassell (Bloxham), 21 James Costin-Pratt (Pangbourne College), 22 Callum Corbett (Stamford), 23 Mason Knowles (Woodhouse Grove).


The remaining thirteen players, including three of Woodhouse Grove’s four representatives, will sit this one out but will be sure to be involved soon as the Lambs look to give each and every player plenty of game time before they head off on tour.


It is going to be a great few months of ‘fast and free’ rugby!
