England announces youth national teams to complete for silverware on home soil

Three England junior teams will travel to Nottingham to compete in the 2015 Junior Touch Championships over the weekend of 22 and 23 August 2015. England will be represented by the elite England Mixed 18s side and two development sides – the Lions Boys 18s and Lions Girls 18s.

The selection process for the Mixed squad commenced in the 2014 Touch Nationals with an extended training campaign. Meanwhile, the development sides comprise of the best five to six players from each regional junior team that completed in the recent 2015 Touch Nations. They have had a shortened training period with a recent training session at Droitwich.
