Former Denstone College student Ben White was selected by the England XV Rugby Union coach Jim Mallinder for the match against Barbarians at Twickenham Stadium last Saturday 2 June.
The England XV went on to beat Barbarians 51-43 in a thrilling match. Ben White who plays for Leicester Tigers came on as a substitute.
England XV Head coach Jim Mallinder said “I think there were some outstanding individual performances today and hopefully Eddie Jones and the rest of his staff will look at that with interest. We’ve had a fantastic week with players and coaches coming together, very similar to the Barbarians, and I think at the end of a very long season we can all enjoy it.”
