Your News England Counties turn to Bob Hood

THE newly created England Counties RU Under 20 team have appointed Yorkshireman Bob Hood as Lead Coach for their inaugural game against Scotland on Friday, May 6, 2011 at West Park Leeds RFC.

During his time with Yorkshire Under 21s and Under 20s from 1995-2007 the White Rose team won 69 of their 74 Championship games and included in that tally eight National Championship titles.

I think the team is a fantastic idea. he says: I find working with Under 20 players really rewarding. Its a fantastic level. Their rugby development is such that they are hungry to learn, but they have the physical maturity of open age players, which is why you get a really good quality of rugby.

Joining Hood on the coaching front will be ex-London Welsh player Paul Cox, currently Head of Curriculum at Worthing College and coach to the England Colleges team, while Rob Clilverd, a director at the Bristol RFC, will be the team's Chairman of Selectors and Malcolm Ross from Leicestershire the Manager.
