DEVON players Freddie Herring, Seb Tooke, Matt Burns, Pete Keanie and Jed Reid represented the South West Under-18s for the first time on Sunday.

The quintet helped the region to a 25-21 win over a Gloucester Academy side in a warm-up match for their national development/England Counties selection weekend.

Exeter Saracens’ Herring, Kingsbridge’s Tooke, Ivybridge’s Burns, Plymstock Albion Oaks’ Keanie and Topsham’s Reid earned selection for the South West after impressing at trials last weekend and also catching the eye playing for Devon in December’s county matches.
