Interesting, the top three in each conference represented in the correct order, in the finals Bath and Wasps with 3 players each finished 52 48. Quins with 4 players selected outscored Sale who had 3 picked, and we with 5 in the selection managed a close win over Glos with 7 picked. Having attended finals day I think there were a couple of Tigers unlucky not to be picked out but I tell you there were some cracking young players on view in all six teams competing, our game has a bright future.

The guy knows his rugby but he will be slightly biased towards southern conference teams just due to the fact he watches them more.

Out of the players not mentioned I think Browning is certainly unlucky.

Strange how they mention Tigers dismantling Gloucesters front row, but only one prop makes the cut.

Think he is doing it with only those who are leaving the academy age range.
Hardwick and Vanes are both U17 I think.

Wish the County had the same approach.

Also Costelow played for the U20's on Friday and assisted in the final welsh try that won the game v England U20's.

Only on the pitch for around 5 mins but sucks in 3 defenders and puts in a lovely sharp accurate pass to try scorer Deon Smith

He should turn out to be a fine senior player. :smt023

England U18 squads are up.

Joe Browning Leicester Tigers (Denstone College)
George Martin Leicester Tigers (Brooksby Melton College)
Jack van Poortvliet Leicester Tigers (Oakham School)

England U18s squad v France (Cheshunt RFC, 24 March KO 2pm GMT)
George Martin Leicester Tigers (Brooksby Melton College)
Freddie Steward Leicester Tigers (Norwich School)
Jack van Poortvliet Leicester Tigers (Oakham School)
James Whitcombe Leicester Tigers (Woodhouse Grove)

Looks like Tigers are keeping hold of Law. (Makes sense)
