Oakham student selected for the England U18 rugby squad

An Oakham student has been selected for the England U18 rugby squad and will attend a development camp this week.

Named as part of a 42 man squad, Form 7 student and Tigers Academy player Cameron will join his England team mates for a 4-day development camp in Bristol.

Scheduled ahead of the beginning of the international calendar with U18 games starting in March, the camp will take place in Shaftesbury Park, with details of fixtures below.

This achievement follows Cameron’s recent appointment as captain of the Leicester Tigers Academy Team and debut appearance in the Senior Leicester Tigers team playing in the final of the Anglo-Welsh Cup and will be a further opportunity for him to develop his rugby prowess.

“It is brilliant to see Cameron leading the way at national, club and school level,” says Director of Coaching and Former Leicester Tigers coach and player Ian Smith. “I am certain that many of our current players will be inspired to follow in his footsteps.”
