International Round Up

Jonny May scores twice for England

Gloucester Rugby had four players representing four different nations in last weekend’s round of international fixtures.

Jonny May scored two tries in England’s 18-7 victory over Ireland in the Autumn Nations Cup and his second try was a masterpiece. He stepped past Chris Farrell inside England’s 22 and burst through the defence with his pace before chipping and chasing his own kick to dot down for the try. He has now scored 31 times, the second highest number any player has scored for England behind Rory Underwood who scored 49.

Louis Rees-Zammit scored a try in his first start for Wales in their 18-0 win over Georgia. The 19-year-old scores tries for fun in the Premiership and is now doing the same on the international stage. Rees-Zammit looked threatening on the left wing throughout the game and is looking forward for his next opportunity to play for his country.

Chris Harris was part of one of the closest games of the weekend when he represented Scotland in their 15-22 loss to France. Harris played a key role in the centre but unfortunately for the Scot, France were able to hold on despite a late resurgence from Gregor Townsend’s side.

A bit further away from Kingsholm, Matias Alemanno played for Argentina in another impressive result for the Pumas. Having beaten the All Blacks in their last fixture, Argentina drew 15-15 with Australia in Round 4 of the Tri Nations Cup. Alemanno was disruptive and denied Australia of any consistent ball and was a key target in his own sides attacking lineout.
