Sevens Wider Squad 2005
Anthony Allen, on the books of NEC Harlequins as a junior, joined Gloucester from Millfield School in 2005 and last November signed a new two-year contract extension after winning his first Test caps. He had run in two tries and forced a penalty try when the Cherry & Whites beat London Wasps to win the Compass Group Middlesex Sevens for the first time in August 2005. Also scored a try in his second Guinness Premiership match against Leicester Tigers, added another against Bristol and then two in the London Wasps' match. A member of England’s Senior National Academy, he represented England Under-18s and 19s and was the only player in the 2006 England Grand Slam-winning Under-21 side to be on the field for every minute of every match.
