Twelve chosen for competitive rugby academies
Twelve Taunton School students have been selected to play for prestigious rugby academies across the South West region.
The boys, who range from age 15 to 18, have been training hard with rugby director and former professional Nicolas Sestaret at Taunton School, and will be playing throughout the season at Exeter Chiefs, Bath Academy, Bristol Academy and Somerset Under 18s.
Nicolas said: “We are really proud that so many students have been selected to play for these prestigious academies. It is a reflection on all the hard work we have been doing in school developing them as rugby players and it will give them invaluable experience of playing at the highest level for their age group.”
