Congratulations to Jos Landu and all the staff at Halifax Elite Rugby Academy for making the England College Lionhearts Squad for their games in July this year.
Jos had to come through several rounds of selection to make it into the squad.
Halifax ERA Director Lee Greenwood explains:
“We sent Jos to the Yorkshire Colleges trial a while back. From his selection there, he played against the North West, and was eventually selected for the College Origin game. This saw a squad of 20 top performers selected to represent the North (North West, North East and Yorkshire) against the South (South East, South West and Midlands) in an 80 minute match”.
Following a training camp with the North Squad and the Origin game on 11th June at Coventry Bears’ Butts Park Arena, England Colleges Head Coach James Massara selected a strong 20 man squad to represent England in games against Scotland U19’s and Wales U19’s.
Lee and Gareth Greenwood are both rightly proud of Jos, and his achievement, as are we all at VLUK.
