One of Cramlington Rockets' brightest prospects has received an Engalnd call up.
Nathan Clemmitt, who also plays for the Newcastle Thunder U16 academy, is in with a chance to line up for England this July, after being named in the England Youth squad for this summer’s tour to France.
Clemmitt has been making waves in the England age groups and was capped for England U15s last summer in their match against Wales.
The call up to England Youth represents another step up in his burgeoning career.
England will play two tests in Le Barcarès on July 13 & 16 with Clemmitt part of a 22-man squad named for the series by head coach Danny Wilson.
Clemmitt will join players from Bradford, Castleford, City of Hull Academy, Huddersfield, Leeds, St Helens, Wakefield, Warrington and Wigan in the training group and will be hoping to impress and earn his first caps.
Thunder scholarship head coach Jordan Robinson said: “congratulations to Nathan on his selection to the England Youth squad, it’s a fantastic achievement to make the 22 man squad and I’m sure he will be looking to enjoy the experience playing for his country over in France”
