London Irish Senior Academy graduate Tom Pearson has been called up to the upcoming England training squad in Jersey.
Pearson, 22, has been involved in several of Eddie Jones’ training camps over the past year and the team will begin preparation for England's autumn internationals schedule with a training camp in the Channel Islands.
The camp will run upon the conclusion of Round 7 of the Gallagher Premiership, taking place from Monday 24th to Friday 28th October.
With all fixtures held at Twickenham Stadium this November, England start with the visit of Argentina (6th), continuing against Japan (12th), then New Zealand on the 19th and finishing up against reigning world champions, South Africa (26th).
The back-row forward signed to the Senior Academy at the Club ahead of the 2021/22 campaign, making 19 appearances in all three competitions and scoring three tries in his first term for Irish.
Making 63 tackles in the Premiership this season, Pearson is ranked seventh league-wide and is set to improve his record at the Gtech Community Stadium field against Gloucester Rugby this evening.
Well deserved, Tom!
