Durham County U16s announce Princes and Bishops squads to face Northumberland Rugby


Durham County U16 play their first fixture of the 2017/18 campaign this Sunday as they welcome Northumberland to West Hartlepool RFC.

After weather conditions postponed their first game with Cumbria earlier in the month, this will be the first test for the side.
