Wildcats under 16’s scholarship duo Jordan Crowther and Max Jowitt have been selected to represent England.
The youngsters will represent England youth in 2013 through their superb performances with the Wildcats during 2012. The international academy side are due to play Wales and France around the Easter period.
Crowther is a versatile forward that plays at either prop or second-row with his junior club being Westgate Wolves. The 15-year-old also attends Horbury School and has been part of a team that became Wakefield District champions and has also being a Yorkshire Cup runner-up with Westgate.
Jowitt, 15, is a full-back that plays for Stanley Rangers and has been part of the successful side that has won four National Cups in-a-row and would love to play for the full England side when he is older.
The Wildcats Player Performance Manager John Kain is delighted for Trinity to receive recognition.
“It was brilliant when we received a letter from the RFL last week stating Jordan and Max have been selected to represent England which is, of course the highest level in their age group.
“It’s a fine reward for their hard work over recent years not only with the Wildcats but their school and junior sides where both of them have had plenty of success. Although we have two of our boys in the squad there were other players that were considered and were very close to selection.
“The club can also be proud of the representation because we have a number of highly skilled coaches who put a lot of time and effort into nurturing these young players as they progress through the ranks.”
