FORMER Pulborough player Billy Twelvetrees has a chance to force his way into the England World Cup reckoning after being named in the Saxons squad.

The England Saxons will contest the Churchill Cup next week, and the one time Boro player, whose family still live in the area, is part of the youngest ever Saxons squad,

It will be the first time Leicester Tigers fly half Twelvetrees has played in the Churchill Cup, featuring teams warming up for the World Cup in New Zealand later this year.

“It’s a great opportunity for so many young players to test themselves against international sides like the USA and Tonga who are preparing for the World Cup,” head coach Stuart Lancaster said.
