As asked for in the requests section , this is the great try that was scored by prop Joe Marler when England played Wales in the Under 20's Six Nations opener last weekend at Kingsholm.
England trailed Wales 8-6 at halftime, but came back to win the match in emphatic style, scoring six unanswered tries in the second half, winning the match 41-14 in the end.
Marler, who plays for Harlequins, said he relished the challenge of facing Wales. "England against Wales is always a tough game, I was really looking forward to the confrontation and in the second half we just did the best we can."
He scored a fantastic try shortly after the break, breaking through two tackles then shifting into another gear to beat the last two defenders. He scored again later in the half.
"We have got the ability and the talent and it's about believing in ourselves. In the first half it wasn't there and it took a few words at half-time to make us realise we were a better side than what we did in the first half.
"It is great to see the forwards handling and offloading and that's what the game's all about.
"You don't want to play for your country and not enjoy yourselves and it's good that we're allowed to play that way," he said.
It's great to see the speed of the young guy, despite his size. I'm sure we'll hear more about him in the not too distant future. For now, this is one for the archives.
