Following the Junior World Championship final victory over South Africa, Billy Burns spoke to rfu.com about a special moment in his young career.
Burns contributed eight points from the tee, and played a key role in implementing the English game plan, which was crucial in the end as England earned the narrow 21-20 win to secure a second successive title.
"The South Africans came at us hard and it could have gone either way but we showed that character.
"Full credit to the forwards to dig it out at the end for five or six minutes. It was an outstanding effort and we have worked hard all campaign and to come out with a gold medal in the end is a massive achievement.
"It was one of our big strengths. We always believe in ourselves and no matter what position we are in on the field we feel we can find a way out of it.
The game was a huge battle up front at Eden Park, and Burns continued to praise the hard work done by the English forwards.
"In the first half the set piece didn't go as planned and us backs weren't as sharp and to come out in the second half and show the character that we did and grind out that win was a real good achievement.
"It was six minutes the forwards held onto the ball there in the end and all credit to them for the discipline the whole way.
"We knew we couldn't give any penalties away because to be fair Handre Pollard was kicking outstanding, and we knew that if we gave him opportunities he was going to take it so all credit goes to the forwards they really got us out of that one.
"We won it last year but it was a different squad so we had no title to our name so to come out here to win it back-to-back in the southern hemisphere was a massive achievement and one we will enjoy for sure."
