Congratulations to Cobham Old Boy Niall Saunders who played in the Ireland Under-18 Clubs team in their first international outing of the season against Italy.
Niall started at Cobham at Under 6 but more recently has been playing for Epsom College 1st XV, Harlequins Under 18s and now Ireland Clubs and Schools via the Irish Exiles club.
Niall Saunders Ireland u18 Feb 2015
He comes from a family with great rugby pedigree as his father Rob was the youngest ever Captain of Ireland and his older brother Ryan plays for our 1st XV.
The result in the match against the Italians did not go Ireland’s way, but Niall (pictured above) played very well, making a number of his trademark breaks from the base of the scrum.
We at Cobham RFC are very proud of Niall’s achievements so far and wish him the best of luck as his career develops!
