The South squad announced for #UniOriginRL 2017

The final 20-man squad for The South has been confirmed for the second-ever #UniOriginRL match between The North and The South.

The South are made up of students from universities from the South West, Midlands and London and will be taking on The North squad, which is selected from students studying in the North West, Yorkshire and Cumbria.

Last year's Origin clash saw The North come out on top with an impressive 44-28 win. This year's South squad, which features an impressive ten representatives from the University of Gloucestershire, will be looking to make it '1-1' in the second edition of Origin.

The South squad were beaten 44-28 last year

Head to Loughborough University on Saturday for the second-ever Origin match!

Once again, Loughborough University will be hosting the match, with the game kicking off at 7pm on Saturday (January 28).

The stand-out players from the upcoming match will be in line for selection for the England Students squad which will play at this summer's Student World Cup in Sydney, Australia.

Participation in the squad is self-funded and each player and member of the volunteer coaching and management team is responsible for raising money for themselves to cover UK-based training and friendly games, kit and equipment, flights, accommodation, travel, insurance and tournament participation fees.

The whole squad will be working hard to fundraise the £110k needed for the trip through selling sponsorship, Community Game Raffle Tickets and staging events, but all donations will go a long way to reducing the cost of taking part in the tournament for the players.
