Academy manager Patrick O’Grady has named his U17s squad for Saturday’s fixture against Wasps U17s at Hazelwood.
Eight of the 23 players selected were involved in the England U17s North v South fixture earlier this year and there are also a number of U16 players stepping up a year after impressing in their own age grade.
The game kicks off at 12noon and precedes the London Irish Wild Geese fixture against Old Albanian which kicks off at 3pm.
