LUCTONIANS, Bromsgrove School and Worcester Warriors hooker George Thomas helped the England Under-18 squad senior team, who are preparing for the forthcoming AER European Championship in Italy, to a 17-10 victory over the Scotland Under-18 senior side at Murrayfield.

This was their final outing before the selectors announce the side to travel to Treviso early next month and the England squad for the Home Unions event.

Both the England A and B Under-18 squads will be in action again at Loughborough on Sunday when they play Loughborough University Freshers' teams in their final warm-up games.
