Teenagers Paul Hill and Sam Allen are having a ball after landing England calls, writes Paul Goodwin.

The Doncaster Knights duo will make their international debuts at the Wellington Festival next month after impressing selectors at an intensive training camp for the country’s best young players.

Paul, from Auckley, hopes to start at prop for England’s Under 16 A team.

And fly half Sam, of Sprotbrough, will line up for England B in the prestigious Berkshire based tournament over Easter.

The pair, who have grown up playing in the same Doncaster junior side, will pit their wits against France, Belgium, Portugal, Scotland and Canada at Wellington College.
