Spurling's national service

By Danny Caro, January 19, 2012

Scott Spurling has been selected for the England under-20 squad competing in the Six Nations competition.

Spurling, who is 18 and from Edgware, signed a two-year contract at Saracens last July. He said: "It's a privilege to be in the squad. All my hard work is coming together."

Spurling has spent the week at a training camp at Surrey Sports Park. The 32-man squad will reassemble on January 30 for the build-up to their opening match against Scotland on February 3.

The hooker scored a try in the Help the Heroes match on his Twickenham debut last month.

He also hopes to take part in this summer's IRB Junior World Championship in South Africa.
