He played in all nine England Under-18s fixtures in 2017, claiming a try in the 45-24 win over Scotland in the International Series in April and touring South Africa in August, before joining the Under-20s squad in 2017/18.

After playing in the Under-20s Six Nations as one of the youngest members of the squad, he went to the World Junior Championship in France during the summer of 2018 and played in every round including the Final.
