Four named in England U18 Women squad for 2022 season

Four Bears Women youngsters have been named in James Cooper’s 34-player England Women’s U18 squad for the 2022 campaign.

Reneeqa Bonna (outside centre/wing), Amelia Clarke (outside back), Bo Osborn-Clarke (back row) and Tillie Westwood (scrum half/fly half) are all selected in the group made up of players from 10 centre of excellences.

The squad will now prepare for forthcoming matches in February and April with training camps in January and March.

On naming the squad, Cooper said: “It was extremely tough to narrow down and select the group after the quality of potential and performances shown by players both in camps and the game in December with some good players narrowly missing out. This is testament to the great work being done at clubs and colleges, constituent bodies and centre of excellences.

“We have gone with the 34 selected players as we believe they give us a good balance across positions.

“This also gives the players the opportunity to challenge for selection into the playing squads for the exciting games coming up in February and April which will be invaluable for their development and learning, and currently show the potential to progress up the international pathway for U20 and future Elite Player Squad (EPS) honours.

“We’re always identifying talent by regularly visiting the centres of excellence and February and March sees the centre of excellence festivals take place, which is another chance to look at potential players who could be selected in future England pathway squads.”
