Farnham Players train with England

2 years ago By Julian Frost

Four lucky FRUFC players took part in a sky England masterclass with Mike Brown, Jack Nowell and Maro Itoje last Sunday, 31st Jan.

The four were 1st team regulars Ollie Brown and Toby Salmon plus Academy lads Jordan Frost and George Northwood. They joined three younger players from Warlingham to spend the afternoon at England's training base of Pennyhill Park. Together they were put through their paces by the England guys under the watchful eye of Sam Foskett, Farnham U13's head coach, who was there in his "day job" role for Sky. The end product will be a 12 minute Sky Masterclass that will appear in full and parts during this years 6 Nations. Attached are some photos taken on the day from the outside session held on England's immaculate Twickenham size training pitch.

Other insights from the day include the talking point of the 85kg dumbells which had been left out on the gym floor after recent use. Also if you ever wanted to know how competitive England's Full Back, Mike Brown, really is then look at the group photo of all the players together at the top of the page.. Mike Brown (6'0") has Jordan Frost (6'4") on his left and who spotted him, at the time, "doing a dad". Need a hint? Look at Mike's feet.

It was a great afternoon for all the players and they thank Sam, Sky and the England guys for a fantastic insight into the Pennyhill set up in the run up to this years 6 Nations
