Worcester pair Matt Cox and James Collins are in the England squad for the Hong Kong Sevens from March 28 to 30 and the Adelaide Sevens the following weekend.
Cox, who started playing rugby with minnows Woodrush, has joined Pertemps Bees on a loan arrangement until the end of the season. He is in line to win his first senior sevens cap in Hong Kong; Collins made his bow in Wellington in the previous round of the IRB Sevens series.
Meanwhile, Tudor Grange schoolboy Will Radburn will captain the England Under 16 A team in next month's eight-nation Millfield international festival. England A will take on France Under 17 A (Tor RFC, April 1), United States Under 17 (Millfield, April 3) and Wales A (Millfield, April 6). The England squad completed their preparations with a 19-19 draw against Saracens Academy Under 17 at Solihull School last Sunday.
Senior Worcester player Matt Mullan has agreed a new two-year contract that will keep him at Sixways until the summer of 2010.
The 21-year-old versatile front row, comfortable at prop or hooker, made his first competitive start for the senior side against London Irish in the EDF Energy Cup in December. His first Premiership start followed, against the same opponents in the same month.
