Brookes named in Saxons squad

Wednesday 21 January 2015

Newcastle Falcons Kieran Brookes has been named in the initial 24 man England Saxons squad to face Irish Wolfhounds in Cork on January 30th.

The only game for the Saxons during this year’s RBS 6 Nations competition, which will be played at the Irish Independent Park (formally Musgrave Park), will provide the England coaching set up with a further opportunity to assess players, in the final tournament before the 2015 Rugby World Cup.

In addition to the Saxon’s squad, today has also seen the training squad for England’s opening game against Wales announced, with former Falcons Geoff Parling and David Wilson among the 34 man squad.
