Powell helps England U20 down Springboks

first_imgSteve Bates’ side scored five tries in an attritional contest, with the fixture serving as a final opportunity for players to earn selection for next month’s World Rugby U20 Championships in Argentina. England led 14-8 at the break via tries from Josh Hodge and Olly Adkins, as well as two conversions, with South Africa crossing the line through Asenathi Ntlabakanye with Jaden Hendrikse adding a penalty.Connor Doherty crossed for a third England score with late tries from Joel Kpoku and Izaiha Moore-Aiono sealing victory with Hodge converting all of his kicks. “I was really pleased with some areas of our game, we scrummaged well and we took our opportunities,” said head coach, Steve Bates.”There wasn’t quite as much continuity as we would like, we’ve been working on that all week but we created three or four other scoring opportunities tonight that we didn’t take and that would have given the score a completely different complexion. Overall though, it’s progress from the Six Nations and a step in the right direction.”The good thing about playing another fixture is that we’ve had a really good week’s training which has brought the squad a lot closer together and I think that is really beneficial. It’s always good to win against a southern hemisphere nation as we did tonight but we cannot read too much into it but generally I think it was a good performance.”last_img read more
