Congratulations to New Zealand born Tiger’s player Thomas Waldrom on his selection for the England World Cup training squad.
He is joined by Leicester team mate, Manusamoa Tuilagi to make up the preliminary 45 man squad for the upcoming World Cup in New Zealand in September.
Manager Martin Johnson told the RFU website: “Every one of these players has the chance to be in that final 30 going to New Zealand. The camp is going to be intense and competitive, as you would expect leading up to a World Cup, but all the players are ready for it.
“We have guys such as Lewis Moody, Jonny Wilkinson and Mike Tindall who have been in this situation before but also a lot of players who won’t have experienced a World Cup training camp. It’s now up to all of them to set down their marker over the next 10 weeks before we head to New Zealand.”
The No 8 was born in Lower Hutt in 1983, and only recently discovered he was eligible to play for England through his grandmother, who was born in the UK.
All of us here at All Blacks Overseas wish him the best :)
