Both games ended in victory for the English in closely contested encounters. Winning the first game 15-13 and the second 32-29, Ed commented on how much he has enjoyed the whole international experience. His pleasure was no doubt topped off by getting on the score sheet with a try in the second game.
Ed came through the NLD U17’s and U18’s programme and demonstrated his leadership skills as well as his playing ability from the first session and he was delighted to progress from Midlands selection through to the final England Squad.
Ed commented that, ‘It has been an amazing experience, thank you to all the coaches and management at NLD for giving me the opportunity.’
Lee Slack, the NLD U18’s Manager added that it was evident from the outset that Ed had the ability to become an outstanding Back Row player. He went on to say that it was a testament to Ed’s hard work and something of great pleasure for the NLD set-up that his potential was realised when he was proudly able to pull on the famous White Shirt.
