Ben Kelland, Year 11 at the Royal Hospital School, took part in the London and South East Division U16 rugby trails at Haileybury School in December.
Ben performed extremely well in difficult conditions against some of the best U16s in the country to secure his place in the squad. This term he will attend a series of Divisional training weekends culminating in an International Festival at Wellington College in April. If he is then selected into the England U16 group, he will play against Italy and Wales.
This honour finished a busy rugby term for the 1st XV player as he was also carried forward into Northampton Saints Junior Academy. Congratulations to Ben on his achievement and good luck.
