Burnley’s Danny Rowlands and Jack Stockdale were recently selected for England’s deaf rugby side as they took on their Welsh counterparts at Pontypridd.

Both players started the game but couldn’t steer England away from defeat as they went down 23-12.

This weekend the club’s first and second string are both at home against Colne & Nelson and Oldham respectively.
