Ex-Hartpury students ready to face Barbarians at Twickenham


Five former Hartpury students have today been named in the England rugby squad to face the Barbarians at Twickenham on Sunday.

Jonny May, Henry Trinder and Elliott Stooke will start the match (3pm kick-off), while Ellis Genge and Dan Robson are among the replacements.

England head coach Eddie Jones said: “This is a good young squad and their work ethic has been outstanding over the last two weeks.

"Their application to learn has been very good but they are very young at Test rugby level so this week’s match against the Barbarians is a fantastic opportunity for them to step up.
“We can’t wait to get back to Twickenham and get on the front foot, please the fans and play some good rugby.”
