Year 10 pupils called up for U15 county duty

Year 10 West Buckland School students Oscar Carter-Burns, Alun Sullivan and Jono Slee have been selected for the Devon U15 rugby squad.

The trio were chosen after successful trials at the end of 2013, and all three boys will be joining up with the Devon squad for regular training sessions around the county in the coming months.

Oscar is a destructive runner from number eight, Alun makes his impact as a dynamic second row and Jono can play both at outside half and in the back row.
