ACADEMY CAPTAIN TO TRAIN WITH ENGLAND COACHES

Chris Easton, the Blues Academy captain, has been selected to be one of 30 players to attend a training session with Graham Rowntree (England Forwards Coach) and Mike Catt (England Attacking Skills Coach), at Twickenham next week.

The day includes a welcome briefing at Twickenham Stadium, home of England Rugby, before the training session, followed by a Q&A session with Graham Rowntree and Mike Catt in the England team changing room at Twickenham.

Chris, who is seen below with the Bedford Blues Under 19-a-side trophy, won by Bedford in the inaugural tournament this week, was nominated by Bedford Blues for the programme supported by BMW Rugby, with the opportunity arising from Club Sponsors Elms BMW and Mini Bedford. Chris, who was selected on the basis of his performance this season, and future potential, will be one of eight Academy players who have been invited to train with the Blues senior XV during the summer pre-season training programme.
