LLOYD Wheeldon did enough to impress the rugby selectors after a starring role in Yorkshire under 16s 41-5 win over Cheshire.

The match was part of the North of England selection festival at Preston Grasshoppers’ ground and the scrum half scored a try and created two others in the first half, before departing with a reccurence of a thigh injury.

His performance caught the eye of the selctors, who have called him up for their development squad.

Wheeldon, who lives on the West Hill estate and goes to Bridlington School, plays his club rugby for Hull Ionians.
