Charlton Kerr (Cobham 16) made his England 7s debut in Las Vegas on Sunday 5 March against Australia and scored the winning try. Anyone who coached or watched Charlton play rugby whilst at Stowe won't be surprised by his first impact shown in this clip of the game. He mentions Stowe in his England profile.
Simon Amor, England 7s Head Coach, spoke exclusively to Stowemail and said “The England 7s Academy programme is now in its second year and Charlton Kerr was identified while at Stowe School as a player with huge potential. He signed for our England 7s Academy programme straight after leaving school and developed his game to become one of our stand-out performers in the Kenya, Singapore and Dubai Elite invitational tournaments where we enter the England 7s Academy team. Through his hard work and desire to improve all aspects of his game, both on and off the field, he was rewarded with his World Series debut in the Las Vegas 7s coming off the bench to score the match winning try against Australia. With hard work and commitment we believe Charlton has a very promising future in the game. His rapid journey onto the world stage shows the progress of our England 7s Academy programme and we are excited about unearthing more young talent.”
