Young Gloucester Rugby bolter Jonny Hill takes another big step forward with England Under-20s
JONNY Hill has hit another big professional-rugby milestone, his second of the summer.
The 6ft 7in locked secured a senior Gloucester academy deal in July – and has followed that up with winning selection to England’s Under-20s squad.
Highly-rated flanker Lewis Ludlow and fast-improving fly-half Billy Burns step up to the Under-20s squad too.
And Ross Moriarty remains in the squad after helping the age-group squad claim the Junior World Championship title in the summer.

Lofty lock Hill arrived at Hartpury with no reputation at all two years ago.
But has quickly made a name for himself, impressing in the college’s walk-up trial game for the Under-18s age-group.
Flanker Ludlow and Hill made their senior Gloucester debuts in Friday’s 22-13 Plymouth victory at Kingsholm.
Ludlow and Burns played a part in the England Under-18s squad last season, and now make the step to the next level.
Burns is keen to follow in the footsteps of older brother Freddie, now an England as well as Gloucester fly-half.
Nigel Davies expects the 19-year-old to feature more frequently in Gloucester’s first team this season, especially while Tim Taylor continues his recovery from long-term knee trouble.
