Newcastle Falcons pair Oli Spencer (right of picture) and Ben Redshaw both started for England Under-20s on Friday as they enjoyed a 31-7 away win over their Georgian counterparts.

Spencer started at outside centre with Redshaw at full-back or the game at Avchala Stadium in the Georgian capital, Tbilisi.

Spencer scored one of three first-half tries for England to help put them into a 19-0 half-time lead, which they extended after the break.

The game is the first of two friendlies against Georgia, the second of which takes place on Wednesday, also in Tbilisi, kicking off at 3pm UK time.

England then move into the Junior World Championships in the South African city of Cape Town where they face pool games against Argentina (June 29, 1pm UK time), Fiji (July 4, 3.30pm) and South Africa (July 9, 6pm).
