Old Albanian’s Dan Watt is one of four Hertfordshire players to be selected by England Counties for their tour to Romania.
The fly-half is joined by former Woollams favourite Karl Garside, now of Ampthill, as well as Hertford’s Sean Taylor and Bishop’s Stortford’s Tom Banks in the 29-man squad for the three-match trip.
Both Watt and Garside will be making their debuts for the side.
The tour begins with a match against CSM Bucharest tomorrow (Friday) before taking on Romania U23s and Romania A respectively on Tuesday and Friday, June 8.
They won’t just be playing though because as well as the games, the squad will be undertaking outreach work in Bucharest to help grow the game in Romania.
