Hurrell hat-trick in England victory

Figure image
Leicester Tigers wing Will Hurrell scored a hat-trick of tries as England Under-18s concluded their summer tour with a 48-20 in over Argentina.

The win handed the Under-18s a clean sweep of wins in a season which also featured a Grand Slam in the Six Nations Festival as well as victories over Tucuman, Buenos Aires, Mendoza and Uruguay.
Coach John Fletcher said: “I’m delighted with the performance and the result on Sunday. To score eight tries in a Test match speaks volumes for the quality of this squad. 
“We have proved we are capable of scoring tries from deep positions with good ball carrying skills, and we have players who can make good decisions on the ball as well as boast having pace throughout the team.”
Clearly unfazed by the prospect of an international Test match, the tourists established a comfortable lead early on, going 19-0 up in the first nine minutes, and never looked back.
Hurrell was joined in the England team by Tigers centre Andy Forsyth, with scrum-half Sam Harrison named on the bench. Tigers colleagues Jimmy Stevens and Joe Cobden were also on the tour.
