Director of Rugby Ben Ward is thrilled to see the Trailfinders Rugby Academy receiving international recognition as it continues to go from strength to strength. “We have a clear aim of making our Academy the most comprehensive programme in the country, and to have six players called up to the Under 20s training squad is a huge success story for us. The players have been working extremely hard and this is reward for that. We are very proud of how our Academy is developing, and hopefully this is just the start of building professional rugby careers for many years.”
