Highlights England Under-20s Angleterre

England produced a brilliant second-half comeback to stun France and kick-start their 2021 Six Nations Under-20s campaign with a 38-22 victory Cardiff Arms Park.

When Nelson Epee scored a hat-trick inside 20 minutes for Les Bleuets, they seemed on course for a comfortable victory – leading 19-3 at the interval.

But the Red Rose were a different side after the break, with two tries in ten minutes from Lucas Brooke and Sam Riley cutting the deficit to 19-17.

Thibault Debaes edged France further ahead from the tee but Orlando Bailey and Arthur Relton crossed the whitewash before Riley added another try to ensure England made the perfect start.
