Loader brothers make mark on international stage

Ben Loader seals the win e

BEN and Danny Loader made it a weekend to remember for the family as they both made appearances for England in Rugby Union and football.

London Irish winger Ben Loader made his first England appearance as he stepped out onto the Twickenham turf as a second-half substitute for the England XV side against the Barbarians.

The 20 year-old showed his potential with a brilliant 2018/19 campaign with Irish as he helped them win promotion back to the Premiership. And he was rewarded with a chance to appear for England as they defeated the Barbarians 51-43 in an entertaining encounter.

Meanwhile, younger brother Danny, appeared as a second-half substitute as England U20’s began their defence of the Toulon Tournament against Japan with a 2-1 defeat.

The 18 year-old Reading striker impressed throughout the Royals campaign last season and scooped the goal of the season award, bending in a stunning drive against Middlesbrough to score his first senior goal for the club.
