Falcons pair start for England U20s

Monday 04 July 2022 Written by: Adam

The Newcastle Falcons pair started in last Wednesday’s 29-20 victory over France, and will again line up as England play their final pool game in the Six Nations Under-20s Summer Series.

The match kicks off at 7pm UK time in the Italian city of Verona, and is being live-streamed on the Six Nations Rugby U20 YouTube channel.

England Under-20s head coach Alan Dickens said: “The players really gave it their all against France, and to score four tries and secure a bonus point was well deserved.

“We know we will need to maintain focus on our discipline in the final pool game against Ireland, who, as we experienced in the Six Nations Championship, are a strong side.”
