A FORMER Chester high school pupil  has been included in the England squad for the forthcoming Six Nations.

Tom Roebuck, 23, is among seven uncapped players in the squad for this year's Championship which begins in February.

Although born in Inverness, Scotland, Roebuck attended Christleton High School before moving on to Wirral Grammar. He played youth rugby at Chester RUFC.

While at Wirral he played in the 2018 U18 Vase Final at Twickenham stadium. They were defeated by Langley School 48–22, although Roebuck did score a try in his side's defeat.

The flying winger made his first team debut for Sale Sharks against Worcester Warriors in the Premiership Rugby Cup in 2018. 

Roebuck represented England and Great Britain sevens at U18s level, and then went on to represent his country at U20s. 

"Building on the foundations of what the England team achieved in the World Cup, I have selected a squad that provides strong continuity and experience, while at the same time providing an opportunity to develop the talent of a number of new and less experienced players," England coach Scott Borthwick said.
