Quintet called up to rugby squad

Five members of Seghill RFC have been chosen for the newly formed Northumberland 7’s rugby squad.

Brad Glennie, Nick Heard, Paul Lathan, Liam Lonsdale and Joseph McLean are part of the squad which is currently training at Druids Park on Sundays.

The 7’s team will play their first tournaments in May, in Bury-St-Edmonds on May 5 and in Manchester on May 18.

A spokesman for Seghill RFC said the five know it will be a steep learning curve, against much more experience opposition, but are keen to be involved in Northumberland RFU’s new team.
