Forgot curry was still U20s....not sure I see the benefit in him playing at that level. Does it mean he will miss sale games?

do we have others that missed out here? Are our talented U18 group still too young?

Alex Shaw on twitter has pondered whether Ben would be released from club activity for U20 duty. Interestingly, he also suggested that Sam Moore turned down a senior Wales cap in the autumn internationals.....

I suspect we'll see some of our U18 crop appear as injury replacements for this squad - Wilkinson, Redpath & Dolly are the ones who seem to be rated most highly. They still have two (I think) more years of eligibility for the U20s, so they'll see another summer tour with the U18s.

Good to see a couple of ex-Sale lads doing well, Rory Brand and Ali Crossdale both making the squad.

As a side note, a back-row of Willis, Curry and Moore is frankly scary at U20 level, it isn't too far away from being a serviceable Premiership back-row...

Speaking to Paolo when he was in the U20 set up, clubs can keep hold of a player if he is needed for 1st team action. Wouldnt surprise me if Curry was released to England during Anglo Welsh matches but kept by Sale if any clash with Premiership ties.
