Sam Nunn selected for North of England squad
Sam Nunn

Congratulations to Sam Nunn Old Rishworthians’ teenage centre on his selection for the North of England under-18 squad.

He has established himself as a regular in Rishworthians team this season and has already scored 11 tries for the club despite having missed several games due to call-ups to the Yorkshire under-18 squad and has already scored three tries in three games for the county.

Sam becomes only the second player from the club to be selected for a North of England squad. Edward Cockroft, Rishworthians’ current scrum half, was selected in 2006 – 07 but did not get to play because of injury. Sam will have a training session with the squad on January 29, before an initial game against a team drawn from the academies of Sale Sharks, Yorkshire Carnegie and Newcastle Falcons, before the away match against the Midlands.

It’s a major achievement for Sam, who started playing rugby at the age of 12 at Crossley Heath School before joining Rishworthians’ junior set-up. Rishworthians have had a number of players selected for county squads over the years at various levels. Sam played for Yorkshire at under-16 level before being elevated to the under 18 squad last season.
