North West v Midlands | squads announced

The pathway to the 2017 Student World Cup in Australia begins

The North West and Midlands squad have been announced for this weekend's Regional Game.

Held at Telford Raiders RLFC, the match sees the best of University talent from the Midlands and the North West go head-to-head for bragging rights and regional glory.

The game is part of the selection process for the England Universities programme ahead of their trip to Australia for the 2017 Student World Cup.

The best players from the match will be up for selection at the end-of-season Origin Game, which will be the final chance for players to prove themselves ahead of the trip to Syndey in July 2017.

They need to raise £110k for the trip and are now fundraising. All donations are welcome at gofundme.com/englandunirl.
