 Please see below selected squad for the U15 game against Yorkshire U15s at Burton RFC, Peel Croft, Lichfield Street, Burton upon Trent, DE14 3RH. Kick off is 2pm.


Would all those selected please arrive at Burton for latest 12.45pm. Playing shirts, shorts and socks will be provided but players must have their own warm up kit and boots, scrum hats, padding (if worn) and Gumshields. Players may arrive in kit but should have trousers, club or plain shirts and county ties for the meal and presentation afterwards. If you do not yet have a County tie, these will be presented to players following the game after the meal.

Would all those players that have been selected for this game please confirm by return that they will be attending.

We also encourage you to nominate any players that have outstanding physical qualities or potential (speed, size, height, strength).

In making the nominations coaches should only put forward players who possess these attributes as it is unlikely that those who do not will get through.

Player who are currently in the Tigers DPP programme should not be nominated for this group as they follow a different player pathway.

The trial will take place on Sunday 14th January 2018 from 12.30pm until approximately 3.30pm at Longton RUFC. Please ensure that any player that you nominate is able to make this date.
