MIDFIELD prospect Max Stelling has been rewarded for his impressive progress with Worcester Warriors by being called up to the England under 20s Elite Player Squad (EPS) for the forthcoming Six Nations.

The 19-year-old centre, who signed a new deal with the club this week, has been named in the 32-man set-up and has also been handed a starting spot for Warriors’ Amlin Challenge Cup trip to Sale tonight (8pm).

Stelling will be available for his country in their first match against France under 20s on Friday, January 31 in Paris.

The youngster will be hoping to emulate teammate Ben Howard, who helped England to Six Nations glory last season.
