Louis Lynagh: England call-up!

Sports

Former Hampton Rugby Captain Louis Lynagh has been called up to the England squad for the Autumn Nations Series that opens against Tonga on Saturday.

20-year-old Louis who left Hampton in 2019, joins the 35-man England squad uncapped but after a superb spell on the wing with Harlequins he is hoping to demonstrate his skills on the national stage.

Louis is in the unusual position of being eligible to play for England, Australia and Italy, and the Wallabies have already expressed an interest in securing his national allegiance.

Following the weekend’s game against Tonga, England will also be facing Australia and South Africa on 13 and 20 November respectively. Director of Rugby Sean Thomson summed up the feelings at Hampton School on Louis’ England debut:

It is fantastic to see Louis continue to go from strength to strength and selection for the England squad is an impressive achievement. At just 20-years-old, he is an extremely talented young player and all of us are hoping he gets an opportunity to play during the upcoming Series. He has put in some excellent performances during his opening months at Quins and it will be exciting to see what he brings to the England team. We wish him and all of the squad the very best of luck!
