SOUTH WEST EIGHT IN ENGLAND U18 SQUAD

The Rugby Football Union have announced their provisional England Under 18 squad for the 2011/12 season, including Millfield School & Bath Rugby duo Tom Ellis and Max Northcote-Green and Ivybridge Community College & Exeter Chiefs forward Joel Conlon.

Under the stewardship of head coach John Fletcher, England U18 have enjoyed several years of success, with 24 wins in their last 27 internationals, including their most recent triumph – a 46-19 win against Australia last August.

Twelve of last year’s squad, including promising Exeter quartet Luke Cowan-Dickie, Sam Hill, Henry Slade and Jack Nowell, have all graduated to the Under 20 EPS side.

Of the current crop, Gloucester’s Billy Burns – one of a trio of Hartpury College youngsters in the squad - has Premiership pedigree as the younger brother of Cherry and Whites fly half, and former England U18 man, Freddie.

Filton College & Bristol Rugby forward Steven Uren and back Nick Carpenter are also included in Fletcher's provisional squad
