Three Leicester Tigers Academy forwards shared in a 24-21 win for England Under-18s against Wales in Cape Town on Saturday.
Second row Joe Maksymiw and flanker Charlie Beckett started for England, with Tigers colleague Owen Hills among the front-row replacements as England staged a late comeback to get their tour off to a winning start.
From 21-7 behind at the break, England battled back into the game and a late Harry Mallinder penalty proved to be the difference.
Head coach John Fletcher said: “We were probably a bit rusty but in the second period we were camped in their half of the pitch and showed some real desire to go and get the win.
“For a first game of the tour we’re really pleased to get the win and we know that we can improve on the performance.”
