De Cothi set for England Under 19 duty

Warriors Academy youngster George de Cothi is named among the replacements for England Under 19s who take on France at Broadstreet RFC in Coventry tomorrow (Saturday 26 April).

The scrum-half is set for his first international appearance after impressing on loan at National Two North sides Bromsgrove and Stourbridge.

De Cothi also came off the bench twice for Warriors in the LV= Cup against Leicester Tigers and Sale Sharks earlier this season.

He said: “I’m really excited as it will be my first taste of representing my country and I can’t wait to see what it’s going to be like.

“I feel like I’ve improved immensely this season playing week in week out at Stourbridge and Bromsgrove, as well as having made my first Warriors appearance.

“Hopefully now I can impress on England duty and take that forward to push my claims for a place in the England Under 20 squad next year.”
