English Independent Schools XV U18 Rugby Squad

English Independent Schools XV U18 Rugby Squad

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.
