Students Trying for England Honours; Six North East University Rugby Players on Course for Call-Ups


Byline: NICK PUREWAL

BLAYDON and Northumbria University duo Andrew Archibald and Mark Wilson are primed to make their full England Students debuts in Portugal later this month.

The Crow Trees forward pair are expected to be named in the starting line-up for England's clash with the Portugal national side at the Est[sz]dio Universit[sz]rio de Lisboa on January 27.

"This is an experience like no other that they will always cherish, and on top of that I am sure both players will add a lot to the England side.

"Mark has rightly won a lot of plaudits this season with his back-row play, even managing first-team action with the Falcons - which is no mean feat.

"He has been very impressive and this is another well-deserved feather in his cap.

"We are really pleased for Andrew too, though, because he has worked extremely hard and put in telling performances this season.

"He has not been so heralded, so it is great for him to be given his opportunity and I have no doubt he will grab it with both hands."

Archibald and Wilson are among six North East students seeking to achieve national sporting honours with England. …
