Durham County Under 20’s
The Jason Leonard U20 County Championship 2018
Durham County U20s begin this year’s campaign in the Jason Leonard National U20 Championship against Cheshire U20.
The game will be played at Sunderland RFC on this coming Sunday 11th February with a KO at 2.15pm.
With Durham having played in the Final at Twickenham last year expectations are high for this year.
However, Cheshire won promotion to the Championship by winning the second tier competition the Shield last year, so a highly competitive match is guaranteed.
