Stamford School Duo Selected for ISRFC Northern Rugby Squad
Stamford School Year 13’s Henry Wills and Callum Corbett are to represent the Lambs Northern squad against the Southern team after being selected following the annual regional matches.
The Northern squad is combined using the best players from the Midlands and Northern teams, while the Southern squad is selected from the South East and South West teams. Each year prior to these teams being selected the Northern and Midlands teams face off as do the South East and South West sides. The two combined sides will face each other on Sunday 24th January at Loughborough University.
The Lambs were founded in 2006, in order to provide boys the opportunity to showcase their rugby skills at a representative level when they may have been unable to do so due to other commitments or lack of selection opportunities. This gives those selected the freedom to express their talent without the pressure of league and competition results and leads to an exciting style of play.
Before the Northern and Southern teams match, the two sides will play warm up games, with the Southern XV taking on the RFY South West U18 Counties side on Sunday 17th January at West Buckland School, while the Northern XV will play Yorkshire U17 at Woodhouse Grove on the same day.
David Laventure, Director of Sport at Stamford School, said; “Henry Wills and Callum Corbett both played extremely well in the trial match and have both have done fantastically well to make it through to the full England Lambs squad.”
