North Midlands hooker Will Radburn will make his England Counties debut on the forthcoming tour to Georgia.
Radburn, who plays his club rugby for Birmingham & Solihull, captained North Midlands in their recent County Championship Bill Beaumont Cup First Division campaign and impressed the England Counties selectors.
He has now been included in a Counties squad for the first time and will fly to Georgia next week for a tour that includes two matches against Emerging Georgia in Tblisi on June 4 and June 8.
Radburn is the only North Midlands player in the 26-strong England Counties squad which will be managed for the first time by Matt Long, his former front row colleague at Birmingham & Solihull.
