Three North Midlands players have been included in the Midlands Under-18s squad to prepare for the match against the Lambs representative side next month.
Hooker Dan Morgan (Ellesmere College and Wrexham) and back row forwards Ben Shimwell (King’s School Worcester and Ledbury) and Wes Blackhurst (King Edward VI Camp Hill and Moseley) were all included in the final squad after impressing at an Assessment Day at Broadstreet RFC near Coventry last Sunday.
Blackhurst was not included in the initial squad for the Assessment Day but received a late invitation which increased North Midlands’ representation to eight.
Midlands Under-18s will train on January 24 before facing the Lambs at Uppingham School on February 7.
The Midlands will play a divisional match against North Under-18s at Macclesfield on February 21.
