North Trial & Assessment Squad 2017

By Howard Hughes

North Trial Squad announcement

The following players have been selected to attend the North U20 Trial & Assessment Day at Wigan RUFC on Sunday 23rd April.

Can all those named please note the following:-

Email your acceptance/refusal of the invitation to trial to the North U20 Team Manager so long as the following conditions are met.

You are English Qualified (This means you have full status to represent England at sport and you have no pending obligations to compete for another country)

You are available and fit to attend the Trial & Assessment Day on Sunday 23rd April. If you are not available or you are injured then please do not accept the invitation.

Players who attend injured will be asked to leave the Trial.

You are available if selected after the Trial to attend the England Counties U20 Selection weekend in Nottingham on the 29th/30th April – 1st May.

Congratulations on reaching this stage, the North U20 Coaching & Management Team look forward to seeing you all on the 23rd April.

We (North U20 Group) understand that a lot of players who have not been invited to Trial will be disappointed, that is entirely understandable but the North U20 Selectors have a tried and tested process of review and selection. Whilst we would love to give feedback to everyone it is just not physically possible to provide succinct feedback to over 150 players in the first instance we would recommend you speak to your County Coach.
