Liza Burgess, WRU Lead Female Age Grade Coach said, “It’s an honour to play this match, 200 years after William Webb Ellis famously picked up the ball and ran. On the back of the other experiences our young players have benefitted from this year, from a successful inaugural U18 Six Nations to some of our players representing the Urdd at the World School Sevens last week, this is set to be another special opportunity.

“We have been training as a wider squad throughout the autumn and the coaching team are looking forward to watching the Regional U18 matches in January and February before finalising our squad for this match and the U18 Six Nations festival.”

Tickets for the England match will be on sale here and profits from ticket sales will to split between the Injured Players Foundation and the schools 1883 Bursary fund.
