Four members of last season’s North Midlands Under-16 squad have been included in the England Under-17 Academies squad.
Joseph Morris (King Edward VI Aston) and Zac Xiourouppa from Ellesmere, have been picked in the 21-strong forward group.
Josh Nott of Hartpury College and Will Butler of Hereford Cathedral School are named among the backs.
The youngsters will attend development camps and will potentially play in friendlies towards the end of the season.
All four are members of the Worcester Warriors Academy.
“We’re delighted these young lads are being recognised at such a prestigious level,” said Warriors Academy manager Mark Hewitt.
“These boys have exceptional talent and representing their country will be a huge honour for them.
“This will further their development as they look to progress up the ladder into professional rugby.”
