Josh Sprules won’t be joining his Bletchley team-mates this weekend, as he’s heading to Cardiff to join up with the England Deaf rugby team.

This Saturday, England take on former world champions Wales, at Cardiff Arms Park, and Sprules, who plays in the front row, will be making his first start for his country.

The 22-year-old has made great strides over the last few seasons and has been ever present in a strong Bletchley pack that tops the league.

Josh has played for England previously, but that was off the bench and he is relishing the chance to show what he can do from the opening whistle.
