5 Wolves Earn England PlaceFive Warrington Wolves youngsters have been named in the England Academy Under 18's Squad to face France next month.Ben Harrison (prop), Danny Colquitt (loose forward), Anthony Rourke (back row), Kevin Penny (winger) and Matty Blythe (centre) are all celebrating call ups this week as part of the the 22-man England squad, which will travel to France in April to take on their elite youngsters. With clashes against the Australian Combined High Schools and the Australian Institute of Sport ahead, 2006 promises to be every bit as exciting as in recent years, which have seen the Academy grow steadily stronger - and prove it by beating the best in the World. The most recent International at Academy level saw England share a two game Series against the Australian Institute of Sport last December - ten of the players who took on the A.I.S. are up for selection once more, but there's also a whole fresh batch of newcomers to the Academy representative ranks.Warrington's Gary Chambers will be the Head Coach with Keiron Purtill of Huddersfield as his Assistant, whilst the Manager's post will be filled by former Wigan and Castleford International Barrie-Jon Mather. Preparation for the game begins in earnest on April 2nd. when the Squad meets for their initial training run. The game will be played at The Complexe Sportif De Carpentras with a 19.00hrs kick off on the 27th April, and looks guaranteed to get the 2006 Academy Representative season off to a terrific start. The England Academy Under 18's Squad in full, will be reduced to a travelling squad of 18 after the final training session.
