REPRESENTATIVE RUGBY ROUND UP: 2019
U20s MEN - Jason Leonard Cup
The U20s had a very strong campaign including a memorable away win against Cornwall at St Austell. They progressed through to the Semi Final succumbing eventually to a strong Yorkshire team who went on to win the final.

GRFU 27 v Yorkshire 43 @ Dings, 14-4 -19
A pleasing feature of this years campaign has been the number of players involved and 19 clubs(or organistions were involved contributing to county rugby.
At the end of the group stages 5 men were chosen from Gloucestershire to play in the SW Division play offs with a view to being selected for England Counties u20s. These were Tom Knight and Beck Phillips (Old Patesians), Tom Price (Cleve), Bradley Dunn (Spartans) and Adam Hopkinson (Unattached). In the end only Tom Knight was selected to tour with England Counties to Romania.
It is fair to say that GRFU is punching its weight at this level and congratulations to Head Coach Rich Planchant and his team, to Alan Dale, Team Manger and everyone who contributed to a successful campaign.
