Lennon for USA 20s 12 May 2020

Lennon picked for USA 20s

RGC’s Oscar Lennon has been selected for USA U20s side, as one of the 33 players in the squad.

The USA Under-20s were originally set to play in the inaugural Men’s U20 Americas Rugby Championship. While the competition was postponed due to COVID-19, World Rugby continues to evaluate the climate for an opportunity to host the event later this year.

He is one of 4 players picked from European clubs and the scrum-half explains how it came about “I thought it was a bit of a shot in the dark, after the process started around Christmas…with them thinking I was some randomer from Wales!!

The coaches looked over the footage I sent over, and they must have liked it!

I have known I had been selected for a while, but I had to hold on from telling people apart from my family.  My dad was born in Cleveland, Ohio so that’s why I qualify for them.  

With the current situation we are keeping our fingers crossed the games will go ahead in some way!”
