England Under-18s denied by hosts

Figure image
England Under-18 - with Leicester Tigers Academy forward Harry Thacker at hooker - ended their summer tour with a 36-29 defeat against South Africa Schools in Cape Town.

England outscored their opponents five tries to three but the clinical kicking of fly-half and captain Handre Pollard proved to be the difference on the day.

Josh Watkins, Joel Conlon, Tom Stephenson, Maro Itoje and Zach Kibirige claimed the England tries, with Billy Burns and Sam Olver each adding a conversion.
