England begin Under 20 World Championship title defence in style

England begin Under 20 World Championship title defence in style

England got the defence of their Under 20s World Cup title off to an impressive start this week with an emphatic 59-7 victory over returnees Japan, while Ireland secured a dramatic last minute win over Argentina.

The competition kicked off on Tuesday and saw easy opening wins for New Zealand who beat Scotland 68-10 and South Africa who saw off hosts Italy 33-5.

England – coached by former player Jon Callard – wasted little time in hitting form as they scored early tries through George Perkins and Jack Walker. They went on to score seven more as 19 year-old Bath fly-half Rory Jennings slotted seven conversions.

Ireland waited until the very last minute to secure their opening day victory over Argentina. Trailing 16-15 with seconds to spare, Tomas Quinlan brilliantly kicked a difficult touchline penalty to sink the Pumas. 

Elsewhere, Wales suffered a 19-10 defeat to an impressive French outfit in Calvisano. Bordeaux winger Lucas Blanc finished off an excellent length of the field team try before Jarrod Evans bagged a late consolation try for the Welsh.
