CLEVEDON’S international cap count increased recently when Under-16s captain Nick Carpenter came off the bench in England Under-17s 18-12 defeat away to France at Brive.

For Nick, who studies at Clevedon School, it was his second cap after playing against Belgium last season and another step towards his goal of becoming a professional rugby player after representing England A last year.

Nick is the youngest brother of 1st team veteran prop Daunce, promising former Colts captain and fly-half Will (currently playing for Portsmouth whilst at university) and Colts centre Matt.

Unfortunately for Clevedon, it is unlikely he will follow his older siblings into the senior set up at Clevedon, as Nick is already on Bristol’s radar as a member of the Academy and is training alongside some of the senior players.
