A recent Peppard School leaver and Beech team captain, Max Jelowitz has recently been selected for the U-12s London Irish rugby team.
Max is a member of Henley Hawks rugby club where he trains twice a week and was captain of the Gillotts U12s rugby team. He also trains once a month with London Irish and is currently training to go on tour to Lyon, France, in May where they are going to play some of the best French clubs.
Last year he went on tour to the Isle of Wight: both Under11s Henley teams got to the final and had to play against each other. It was really, really tense.
He thinks the best things about rugby are the team spirit and the tours and one day hopes to become an international player for Ireland!
Big congrats to Max!
