The team at Durham School are thrilled to offer congratulations to our very own Owen Vassallo who has been named in England Rugby’s U18s development camp. Owen, now 17, has been a pupil at Durham School for four years and his journey to excellence on the Rugby pitch has seen him be celebrated numerous times.
But this most recent achievement is undoubtedly a milestone moment for Owen and his coaches Mr Mark Bedworth (Director of Sport) and Mr Scot Powell (Rugby Coach).
Owen, whose brother Blake has also featured in Durham School’s rugby teams, is looking forward the 10 week camp as one of the select Forwards. He said “ I was shocked when I heard the news, it was so unexpected.
