Robbie and Richard

Following their success at Shropshire level Richard Baxter and Robbie Houston, have recently been on duty for the North Midlands U18 XV. The North Midlands side comprising of the best rugby players from Worchester, Birmingham, Herefordshire and Shropshire has so far had three outings and all three have resulted in resounding victories against Warwickshire, Staffordshire and most recently against Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire and Derbyshire combined team.

Both Richard, aged 16 years old, from Shrewsbury and Robbie, from Ellesmere, aged 18 years old have been at Ellesmere College since the age of 13 and are looking forward to further opportunities to shine in front of regional selectors.
