After a week of your submissions we have now selected five teams from which you can vote for the ultimate Schools Rugby 2019/20 Counties XV.
The response through the week after submissions opened has been fantastic and over 200 names were submitted, with the South-East in particular having a huge number of names sent in to us.
From all of those names from the four regions we have selected four regional sides, North, Midlands, South East, and South West and, such was the overwhelming number of submissions, a fifth team that is a mix of all four regions (though it is worth ensuring a thorough look through all teams as we have been a touch creative on the location of some schools).
The five teams are published below, and under that you can vote for your Schools Rugby 2019/20 Counties XV position by position.
First though it is worth mentioning some of the players that missed out on these sides through no major reason other than the sheer weight of numbers. There are a huge number that miss out and it is worth remembering that in the construction of these regional teams from the submissions ultimately it is just one man’s opinion.
From that opinion though is the chance for you all now to give yours and to vote for the Schools Rugby 2019/20 Counties XV.
