Macclesfield Express - - WILDLIFE -


KING’S rugby stars will pro­vide the cur­tain raiser for the Eng­land ver­sus Canada women’s in­ter­na­tional when they take on Har­row School at Al­lianz Park this Fri­day.

They will take to the ar­ti­fi­cial sur­face, home to Euro­pean Cham­pi­ons, Sara­cens, at 4.30pm ahead of the in­ter­na­tional at 7.30pm, to face one of the strong­est sides in the coun­try cur­rently on top form.

Har­row re­main un­de­feated af­ter big wins ver­sus Warwick School, Dul­wich and Eton Col­lege but a tough King’s unit will hope to cause a ma­jor up­set and turn over the Har­ro­vians who are cap­tained by fly half Manu Vu­nipola, brother of the two Eng­land internationals.

“King’s will not be fazed by the task,” said Head of Rugby Giles Hether­ing­ton. “We have lost just once in the last seven matches, against Glen­stal Abbey from Lim­m­er­ick, a side that con­tained the Ire­land U18s Fly Half and have al­ready se­cured a place in the Na­tional Schools Cup Last-16 af­ter eas­ing past lo­cal ri­vals Chea­dle Hulme 33-7.

King’s have their own stars and will con­tain Sale Sharks Academy pair Will Davies and Ol­lie Leatherbar­row, as well as Cheshire and RGC player Sion Daven­port, while cap­tain and Num­ber 8, Owen Jones will lead from the front.
