Two of Olney RFC's former Junior players have made it to the starting line ups of international U20s teams.
Selected for the England U20s for the fixture against France U20s, and starting at fly half, is Tom Hardwick. Tom, who plays for Leicester Tigers, was in the unbeaten U14 and U15 squads at Olney RFC. Tom, who also played for the England U16 side, comes from a rugby pedigree with his father a former England and London Irish prop and his elder brother Will in the England Counties side. Tom's younger brother Robin also played for Olney before moving to Rugby.
Fraser Strachan is starting for Scotland U20s at outside centre, for their game against Ireland U20 on Friday 9 March. Fraser plays for Northampton Saints Senior Academy having been involved with the Saints from the age of 13. He played most of his youth rugby at Luton before moving to Olney RFC at the age of 14 where he played in the unbeaten U14 and U15 squads and got selected for the England Midlands U16 team.
Congratulations to both players and good luck from all of us at Olney RFC!
