Oaklands College star retains England spot
Jubb hangs on to second row berth
TOM Jubb of Oaklands College has retained his place in the England U18s side for their clash with Italy this weekend.
The Saracens lock helped England to a convincing victory over Ireland back in January and will line up in the engine room alongside London Irish’s George Sanford for this Sunday’s game at Heywood Road, Sale.
U18s head coach John Fletcher said: “The first two games of any campaign are a chance to give all the lads a game so we always intended to make changes and get new players starting the match against Italy.”
“It’s great to be able to pick from pretty much a full squad, who have learnt the lessons from a tough win over Ireland. We’re in a better place now, all squads grow over time, so we need to continue to play well and win as many matches as we can.”
