11 NLD U20 players have been selected in the 34 man Midlands Squad ahead of the final selection at Nottingham RFC on 24th April. From here the final 23 man squad will be selected to play in the Divisional Festival over May Bank Holiday.
NLD U20 Manager Graeme Gunn commented; ‘It’s fantastic to see so many NLD players through to the next stage of selection. The most we have had in a previous year would be 9 so it is testament to the quality of the squad this year that so many made it through. We would like to thank everyone involved in the U20’s squad this year and wish these players the best of luck as they continue their journey’.
