Although Storm Dennis prevented any rugby at Bognor RFC at the weekend it was not all doom and gloom.
Lewis Decarteret and Andrew Fadera, members of Bognor RFC Colts Academy, were in Stourbridge starring for England Rugby London and South East Division in their 31-7 win against the South West of England.
The players were selected for the squad following successful games playing for Sussex under-18s.
They are now only one step away from the England team.
This was the first of a series of matches which will see the players face the Midlands and North.
Fadera is in his last year at Hurstpierpoint College and was previously with Harlequins’ junior set-up until an ankle injury saw him leave the programme.
These games serve as trials for the England Under-18 team.
The Academy wish the lads luck and will have to play without them next Sunday as the Greens host Pulborough and the Purples travel to Crawley.
