Warriors announce squad for Singha Premiership Rugby 7s

Warriors have named a young squad for the Singha Premiership Rugby 7s at Newcastle Falcons’ Kingston Park this Saturday 30 July.

Warriors Academy product and England Under 20 world champion Huw Taylor will skipper the side with fellow Academy back rowers Sam Ripper-Smith, Tom Dodd and Ben Fowles also included.
 
First-team fly-half Tiff Eden is in the side along with Academy winger Josh Adams while Warriors Under 18 stars Ted Hill and Dion King are also named in the 12-man squad.
 
Warriors will start their day of 7s action at 3.25pm against Leicester Tigers before back-to-back clashes against hosts Newcastle at 4.20pm and Sale Sharks at 4.50pm. 
 
Academy Manager Chim Gale said: “We’re excited about travelling up to Newcastle to play some free-flowing rugby.
 
“The competition will be an opportunity for some of the lads to showcase their talents at a great venue and also a special moment for some of them to pull on the Warriors jersey for the first time.
 
“Hopefully we can put on a good display and book a place at the 7s Finals Day at Wasps’ Ricoh Arena.”
