Junior teams confirmed for Dublin 2017

The England Mixed 15s, Mixed 18s, Boys’ 18s and Girls’ 18s teams have been confirmed for August’s Junior Touch Championships.

The groups have been selected after a series of training and development sessions over the past few weeks, and they will have the opportunity to shine in the Emerald Isle against their compatriots from across Europe at the three-day tournament between August 18th and 20th.

There will be three more training sessions for the teams to hone their games before they head west, two in July in Warwick and Northampton and a third in Reading in early August.
