Joe Tarrant Tours Canada With England Counties
Fly half Joe will celebrate his 22nd birthday by travelling with England Counties for their summer tour to Canada where they will play three fixtures against Canadian Rugby Championship opposition in Vancouver (June 3rd), Calgary (7th) & Toronto (11th).
Educated at St. Joseph’s College, Ipswich he was part of their very successful school side that saw four team mates join him in selection for England Schools & Clubs U17/8 in 2012.
Joe joined Ampthill from Bedford Academy in the summer of 2013 for the National 2 South campaign and has since become a fixture in the 1stXV making 82 appearances and scoring 419 points including 38 tries. In 2014/15 he was the leading points scorer across the National leagues with 314.
He was rewarded this season with a first cap for England Counties in their March fixture against France Federale which saw England win by 32-3 with Joe capping a fine team performance with a solo try.
Everyone at Ampthill wishes him the best of luck on tour. Go easy on the bumps lads…
