Very disappointing to see that there isn't a single Falcons player selected in Steve Bates 32 man England U-20 Elite Player Squad for the 6 Nations and U-20 World Cup in May.

London Irish, Worcester and Northampton provide 13 players. Surely there must be at least one young Falcon who merits selection?

Maybe we just don't have anyone in that particular age group who is top of the tree at the moment.

Yeah I thought Radwan was a certainty then was informed he was about 2 weeks older than the requirements.

Aside from him...theres not many on the horizon at that age group as Monkey has mentioned above.

Hopefully a few of the younger age groups will make up for it over the next few years.

Agree with Monkey too. The better players as far as Falcons are concerned are in the U18 team, but obviously not quite good enough for U20..
You can't just select a squad in the interest of fairness to respective clubs. These things appear to go in phases. Our time will come.

Any one worth their salt will be on the radar that is for sure.

Real shame for the club and a little worrying that we've not got anyone knocking on the door. Look at some of the lads we've provided over the years in Witty, Chick, Wilson etc and they usually get plenty of gametime here, unlike some other clubs.

Charlie Wilson for one wasn’t far away, and still has another year at that level. Rest assured we have plenty of talent pushing through.

Thanks Mark, good to hear. We could do with a few more gems coming through in the next few years, a prop would be nice.
