MARK Wilson was keeping his fingers crossed that he did enough in last week's Rugby Union World Cup pool game against the USA to earn selection for England's next pool game, Saturday's all important clash against Argentina.

The former Kirkbie Kendal School pupil and Kendal RUFC player was named on the bench for the USA game and coach Eddie Jones threw him into the fray at the break, with the player given a full 40 minutes to impress and helping his side to a 45-7 win.

And he was anxiously awaiting Jones's decision on the line up for the Argentina game, which kicks off at 9am BST on Saturday.

Wilson, who turns 30 next Sunday, October 6, began his senior career at Penrith before moving to his home town club.

He spent two seasons at Mint Bridge before joining Newcastle Falcons, and he is currently on a season long loan at Sale Sharks who he joined following the Falcons' relegation last term.

Around 200 children from nine primary schools took part in the annual Johnny Walker Tag Rugby Festival at Giggleswick School.

The festival, held every September, commemorates the life of Johnny Walker, the school's former properties manager noted in the area for his prowess in both rugby league and rugby union, who died in 2013.

The day began with rugby clinics which focused on basic ball skills and agility and was followed by an under nine and under 11 team competition.
