Following on from last months RFUW High Performance Academies (HPAs) invitations to further progress now see Camps' no. 8 Morgan and fullback Kilby through to the next round of assessments, but it was not all plain sailing for Kilby: "I didn't hear anything for 3 weeks so I assumed I hadn't got in, but it turns out the postal strikes had "misplaced" my selection letter and a back-up email from the RFUW confirmed that."

Both players have had astonishing seasons: winning the league and achieving promotion for their Club side - both breaking personal try-scoring records along the way - all whilst helping the West Midlands retain their Regional Championship title (for the third consecutive season).
But Morgan continued to excel, going on to secure Rugby League regional honours for the London Rep side whilst deservedly being singled out as Camps' Player of the Season: "its been a great season, its been hard-work but its all been worth it."
The duo now look ahead to three days of intense training and quality coaching "alongside some of the best players in the country, its going to be a real challenge, but a fantastic opportunity" says Morgan "I'm definitely looking forward to it."
Morgan and Kilby will fight it out for a top 100 spot and the right to wear a coveted Super 4 shirt – from which the country's elite 44 players are picked to form England and England A squads.
