Bishop's Stortford colts Henry Walker and Oscar Wilson help Saracens under-18s beat Bristol Bears

Two Bishop's Stortford colts were in the Saracens under-18 side that beat Bristol Bears, writes Andy Lines.

Henry Walker and Oscar Wilson, who have played at the Silver Leys club for many years, were delighted to be in the same team together.

Sarries beat their west country counterparts 10-7 with Walker starting as hooker and Wilson as centre.

Stortford's colts lead coach Dave Macfie said: "We're very proud of the two lads.

"We obviously miss them playing for Stortford, but they're going on to start great rugby careers for themselves.

"Both lads are still often seen up at Silver Leys and are very much part of our colts family, even though they can't play for us this season."

Former Bishop's Stortford College pupil Walker is studying at Hartpury College in Gloucester while Wilson, who went to The Bishop's Stortford High School, is at Oaklands Academy in St Albans.

Both teenagers have also been selected to take part in the England academy programme.

The success of the colts has also seen them lose several players for recent key matches as they had trials for the England Lambs squad.
