Prop Luke Cowan-Dickie flick pass sets up try for England U20 vs France U20


England beat France 40-10 in their Under-20's Six Nations game at Sixways at the weekend. England led just 6-3 at halftime, but found their feet in the second half as France tired. Here's a quick look at two of the best tries from the high scoring game.

With ten minutes left in the game England lifted the tempo and captain Jack Clifford got his second try, thanks in part to a superb tap on from prop Luke Cowan-Dickie. Wing Henry Purdy completed the effort later on, scoring in the corner after a good run from Ben Howard.

Both tries were uploaded by the official RFU channel, and after a few requests for another look at the Cowan-Dickie flick pass, we thought such a good piece of skill needed to be shared.

After three matches played, Wales top the U20 Six Nations table with 6 points, followed by England and Scotland on 4 points, then Ireland and France on 2 points. Italy are yet to win a game.

So good to see youngsters playing with skill and the nerve to do something different

It's funny how the best action in the game was actually coming from french side (Fofana try), but some people rather not show it so england does not look ridiculous ...

Mate, they got smoked 40-10, how could you possibly complain about the france highlight not being shown?

because this was and under 20's game and Wesley Fofana is not 'under 20'

Cowan-Dickie is a future star IMO, for the following reasons

1] Being able to recognise exactly what was needed in that 'blitz defence' moment
2] having the skill set to attempt it
3] executing it
4] daring to wear a mullet

all these make him a stand out prospect , RFU recognise this already as they've started his media training in the U20's

Although I'm amazed he & his parents didn't stay in Worcester Clubhouse to watch the main Eng v France 6N on the big screen . . . . .

. . . . which begs the question........ are they player/parents or 'fans' of the sport ?

Have you driven from Cornwall to Worcester and back in a day? I can understand why they didn't wanna hang around.
