Figure image
England Under-18s, with Leicester Tigers Academy duo Charlie Thacker and Owen Hills in the squad, qualified for the FIRA/AER European Championship Final as they beat Wales 11-9 in Pobiedziska, Poland, on Tuesday.

A late penalty from Harry Mallinder put England into their fourth successive FIRA/AER Final after a try from prop Jack Stanley and penalty from fly-half Theo Brophy Clews.

England trailed 9-8 in terrible conditions until five minutes before the final whistle when Mallinder landed his kick.
