Team Bath BUCS Super Rugby player Tom Carr-Smith named in England U20 squad ahead of Six Nations title defence

University of Bath student Tom Carr-Smith has been named in the England Rugby U20 Elite Player Squad for a second successive season.

Carr-Smith, who is in the second year of a Management degree course, is one of ten players previously capped at U20 level in the 32-man squad having helped England complete the Grand Slam in the 2021 U20 Six Nations tournament.

The scrum-half combines his university education with training with the Bath Rugby Academy, making his senior debut for the club during November against Gloucester in the Premiership Rugby Cup.

He has also represented Team Bath men’s 1st XV in BUCS Super Rugby this season and is among 15 student-rugby players supported by the Team Bath Dual Career programme.

Carr-Smith and his England team-mates will meet up for two four-day camps and a training game against Oxford University in the first half of January before beginning their 2022 Six Nations campaign against Scotland in Edinburgh on Friday 4th February.
