Squad 2019/20

Hampshire U16 County Squad selection

Firstly, may I thank all the players and parents who attended the trials at Havant and Alresford for the 2019 Hampshire U16 County Rugby Squad.

As you will appreciate, with the number of players that attended the trials and the very high standard of competition for every position, selection has not been easy and some tough decisions have had to be made. We will discuss with players the position that we have selected them in during training sessions, especially up front, where we will be playing a ‘back five’ rather than a ‘front 5’ and players will need to be interchangeable.  

Congratulations to all those players who have been selected for this years’ Squad; and for those unsuccessful, please continue to develop your skills and rugby knowledge throughout the year, ready to demonstrate your improvement at the next opportunity.

The Full Squad of 60 players is as follows:

Next Steps

This season we will again have two squads of 30 players, each playing four fixtures, as outlined below.

In order to maximise our time together as teams, we will be holding some additional organisational /set piece training sessions on Monday nights for Forwards ONLY. This will ensure that we have enough time to work on unit skills, leaving the Friday nights for team play.

Please confirm your availability to Gareth for each the sessions and games by Sunday 17th November 2019 and ensure that you make every effort to attend the sessions committed to.

It is a real achievement to have been chosen for the U16 Squad and we are keen to make this an exciting season of County rugby, keeping it fun and friendly but physically and technically challenging as well.

As a team of coaches we look forward to working with you over the coming months and building two very successful teams and to playing some brilliant rugby.

Kind regards,

Gareth Lewis
