The search for potential Sean Kerlys will get under way during the coming week with the junior territorial and divisional tournaments in Sheffield and Bristol.
The best place to be will be the Aurora Club, Sheffield, for the women's under-21 event starting on Thursday. With England committed to the Under- 21 European Cup in Cardiff in August, the national coach, Mary Nevill, will be keen to see what is in the locker. "It is a very important tournament. Everyone in contention for places for Cardiff will be there and it will be the last chance we have to see all the contenders on a level base in a competitive tournament situation."
Nevill also made it clear that another priority in Sheffield will be to have an early look at replacements - in view of the Junior World Cup in Seoul in 1997 - for those players who will be over age after Cardiff.Reuse content
