Oaklands duo answer England call

Jubb and Crumpton named in England U18s squad for semi-final

RUGBY UNION: Two stars of Oaklands College’s rugby scheme have been name in England’s 24-man squad for the U18 FIRA tournament.

Lock Tom Jubb and fellow forward Max Crumpton, who both also represent Saracens, have been named by head coach John Fletcher for this Sunday’s semi-final clash with Wales.

Fletcher’s side have had a mixed season, enjoying wins against Ireland and Italy earlier in the year before suffering a 26-21 defeat against Scotland just over two weeks ago in Leeds.

A win against the Welsh, in Auch in the south of France, would take England into the final of the competition against either Ireland or hosts France on Saturday, April 23, in Tarbes.
