Will Joseph makes England debut in Australia win
Former Newbury Blues star Will Joseph made his international debut as a late substitute in England’s 25-17 win over Australia in Brisbane.
Versatile back Joseph, 19, won his maiden cap alongside fellow Exile Henry Arundell.
The duo are the first London Irish players to represent England since 2014.
Joseph went to school at St Martin's – he's changed a lot since then!
Joseph, who is with England as an apprentice, was a late addition to the full squad following the withdrawal of Jack Willis.
Joseph made his first Irish appearance in the 2020/21 season and added another eight appearances this campaign, scoring two tries.
The centre scored his first Exiles try in a European Challenge Cup tie against Castres and then scored another in Irish’s semi-final Premiership Cup win over Leicester Tigers.
Last season, Irish finished eighth, their highest finish since 2012, and reached the final of the Premiership Cup.
Joseph committed his long term future to the club in June.
Joseph has also represented Berkshire, England Under 18s and England Under 20s.
Joseph follows in the footsteps of his brother Jonathan, who made 51 appearances for England.
England bounced back from defeat in the first test in Perth to level the series ahead of the decider next weekend in Sydney.
