Students Selected in London Irish Trials
Year 8 students Hugo Carey, Myles Gray and Owen Palmer were put forward by their local rugby teams (Petersfield and Havant) for trials with London Irish.
The boys joined over 170 other hopeful youngsters in Portsmouth last week, and were 3 out of under 50 boys to be selected on the day! Now they will train fortnightly at Hazelwood in Sunbury and Applemore College in Southampton, and will play matches and have the opportunity to go on tour to France at the end of the season.
Owen said, “I am delighted to get this chance!”
Hugo added, “I am honoured and this my biggest achievement in my life so far!”
Myles concluded, “It is exciting and a great opportunity to start my rugby career!”
