Congratulations to Ben Bruce (U6, L) who
has been selected for The Lambs U18 Rugby Squad. This
follows the selection of Ollie Thorley (5th, BH) for the England U17
rugby squad last term.
The Independent Schools Rugby Football
Club known as ‘The Lambs’ was set up in 2006 to provide representative rugby
opportunities for talented young players where they did not exist before. The
initial motive for setting up The Lambs was to try and stem the huge tide
of players leaving the game as soon they left school.
It was hoped that by providing
additional opportunities to play beyond the school playing field that those
players could be enthused and enticed to remain in rugby for life, for the
overall benefit of the game.
33 boys from schools throughout England
have been selected for the English Independent Schools National Playing Squad.
Ben will play in his first match against
Irish Exiles on Sunday, 27 January at Maidenhead RFC.
We wish Ben every success and look
forward to following his progress with the Squad.
