Four Cherry and Whites helped England U20 complete the U20 Six Nations Grand Slam after a bonus-point 27-17 win over Italy.

After four bonus-point wins in the first four rounds of the competition, England ran in four tries at Cardiff Arms Park to secure their first title since 2017.

Arthur Clark, Jack Clement, Freddie Thomas and Josh Gray were all involved in the result and have gained great experience playing in the tournament.  

England head coach Alan Dickens: "That was a tough game for us today. We were probably a touch tired, certainly in that second half, and fair play to Italy as they made us earn that win today.

“This season the players have had to show that grit because of the circumstances they’ve faced. You saw today they wanted to play rugby and I’ve seen that throughout the season.

[On his favourite game of the Six Nations] “That’s quite hard really. Certainly the second half against France after being 19-0 down at half time, then the physicality and confrontation against Ireland – that was a massive game. They’ve all posed different challenges."
