Myerscough College rugby players scrum down for England Colleges’ Rugby Squad

A college is celebrating the fact that a group of its rugby players were selected to join a national training camp.

Nine of Myerscough College’s Rugby Academy gained one of the fourteen places available in the Northern Region, to join the England Colleges’ Rugby Men’s Squad.

The England Colleges Men’s squad is made up of players who have successfully taken part in the regional trials process.

They represent the best further education colleges rugby has to offer and will represent their college and their country in internationals against the Portuguese U18’s, Irish Exiles and the Welsh Colleges.

Myerscough’s Academy course leader Rod Murray said: “Everyone here is so happy for the boys.

“We’re especially proud that nine out of the fourteen Northern Region places have gone to our Academy students.

“It shows the level of talent we have here at Myerscough College and proves that our training methods and techniques are working.

“Hopefully next year we can get a clean sweep with all fourteen places.”
