While most of the present England XV seem well past their sell-by date, the U20 team has just won the U20 Grand Slam by beating the very good Irish U20 team handsomely. The players all seem very skilled and very keen, as do the coaching staff. Cannot wait until they all get their chance in the senior side.
So England were not so bad as feared and managed a reasonable win against an Irish side not really firing on all cylinders. All the best players were the younger ones!
