Four Falcons in England squad

Monday 18 October 2021

Newcastle Falcons have had four players named in England's Elite Player Squad as they prepare for the upcoming autumn internationals, with Callum Chick, Trevor Davison, Adam Radwan and Jamie Blamire all called up.

All four players made their England debuts during this year's summer internationals against the USA and Canada.

Hooker Blamire scored on his debut against the USA before adding a hat-trick the week after against Canada, while winger Radwan marked his debut against the Canadians with a hat-trick of his own.

Newcastle Falcons director of rugby Dean Richards said: "We're delighted for all four boys at receiving their call-ups.

"It's great that so many of our players are being recognised at international level, and I'm sure they'll give a great account of themselves in that environment."

England's upcoming schedule sees a training camp in Jersey next week ahead of the following matches, which are all at Twickenham:

Sat Nov 6: v Tonga

Sat Nov 13: v Australia

Sat Nov 20: v South Africa

England head coach Eddie Jones said: “This is a young but very good, talented squad who have all earned their places. It is one of the most competitive squads I have ever picked.

“There are a number of disappointed players who haven’t been selected, but they know what they need to do and no door is closed to any player.

“We’re looking forward to three tough Test matches. Tonga always play a strong, physical game and Australia and South Africa have had extended periods together and will be a good challenge for us.

“Our aim each week will be to get better and better as we work towards the Rugby World Cup in 2023.”
