ROSSALL School pupil Asa Watson is on the up in rugby union.

The 17 year old from Fleetwood was invited to have trials for North of England under 18s.

The front rower has played for Fleetwood RU for the past five seasons and Lancashire for two.

And although Asa did not make the final North team, he is on standby in case of injuries and is officially one of the North’s top eight prop forwards.

He was also named in the under-18s Independent Schools Barbarians squad last year.
