Three Wasps Under 18s players, who are part of the Wasps ACE programme have been called up to represent their country at this year’s U18 Six Nations Festival in France.

The trio look set to be capped at this year’s Festival which is being held at the French National Training Centre in Marcoussis off the back of an excellent season for Wasps Academy and the City of Oxford College.

Will Glister and Epi Rokodrava have been selected by England, with Lorenzo Casilio being called up by Italy.

The trio helped the College get all the way to the final of this year’s prestigious RFU ACE league, prior to impressing in the Premiership U18 Academy league with Wasps and in the international window.

City of Oxford College ACE Head Coach, Alex Guest, commented on their selections: “Will, Epi and Lorenzo have been outstanding for the College this season and their call-ups are just rewards for their efforts and commitment.

“Balancing their academic studies and rugby development timetables is not an easy task but all three, along with the support of their families, have done an excellent job in doing so.”
