And, no really outstanding players from either side. Looking to the future it's better to have a few real talents coming through, than a team of decentish players - even if you aren't always winning.


We've at least 4 outstanding players not involved, 2with senior caps already.

Curry twins. Cokanisiga - or is he too old? who else is missing?


Marcus Smith. Jacob Umaga.

Yes, I did think about that just after posting - they'd make a huge difference to that team. Hope they are made available for the u20 RWC

Are we hoping too much to think that Italy U20 is looking reasonably competitive?

And so it turned put to be. We were lucky that England took their foot off the gas, as it could have got ugly...but I suppose you had to also give credit to the Welsh youngsters for not not to my capitulating either.

The sad/annoying thing is, you can predict the general U.20 Welsh team year on year...decent front row (with the odd standout), soft as shite second rows, good to great backrow, and a patchy set of backs. Year in. Year out.

Under 20s is definitely where England's bigger playing numbers give us a huge advantage. But, as long as you have 2 or 3, good, future internationals from each crop, you still have plenty coming through for the main side.

managed to watch a bit of the second half (Sco Fra). Scotland are awful and lightyears away from France athleticism-wise, but some of those Fr tries were really well knitted together.

Those Kolinga and Bamba boys, LHP and THP, are absolutely impressive specimens for U20.

I guess it's up to France whether they want to Slam or not, hosting Eng in Paris this year.

I know the French are heavy into their cheating, but putting out your first team in an U.20's tournament is taking it bit far don't you think!

Didn't they do that last game too? Sounds like an exciting bunch.
England struggled in the rain against the Italians

Just confirmed that there's no stream on Twitter. Guess they rely on the host put one up if broadcasters aren't interested and the SRU weren't bothered.

Some pretty limp wristex tackling from Ireland allows Wales to score after a few minutes. Still good strength and skill from Basham.

At this stage it looks like the French slam is pretty much odds on.

Italy were competitive in their other two matches against England and Ireland. But France are clearly a class above anyone else in the tournament.

Be interesting to see how strong England are in the JWC, as they usually bring back a few more of the big guns for that.

None of the above. Just Twitter. SRU for the latest update. Hardwick and Seabrook with the Eng tries so far apparently.
