Three members of the Harlequins Academy have been named in the England Under 18 Conference squad ahead of their season's opening game against South West Academies U18 on Sunday at Bath RFC.
George Merrick (Whitgift), Sam Twomey (Dulwich College) and Kyle Sinckler (Epsom College) are part of a 31-strong squad to be led by Coach John Fletcher.
England are unbeaten at U18 level for the past two seasons and will take that record into four Conference games against the Academy sides from the South West, London & South East, North and Midlands in the build up to their international programme.
