The English 9 Randall, I'm sure was a Wales under 16 player.....impressed by Owen lane and will Jones at 7. The English 14 is rapid too

Daivs (English 14) scored a great try V Wasps in the Academy finals day for Tigers very very quick

Better ending than yesterday.  Shocking place kicking though by Wales but what composure at the end by the English 10.  Is it Paul graysons son?

would say England had the better backs on the whole the welsh the better pack on the whole (Bar Earl @ 8).

Will be interesting to see how they develop.

That's a fair summary welly, Phil Jones the starting fly half came off way too early and we should have started with efan jones from rgc1404 @ 9. However I feel wales may rue in the coming years losing harry Randall to england

Well our U18s are getting better at least. Aren't these games a warm-up for a European comp next month? Also on Randall, if he's that Welsh then surely he'll be back some day like Moriarty?

Yes there is a tournament at the end of the month. Our age grade teams are really good, the academies at the four regions and rgc1404 have been conditioning the young lads. Our under 20s which include around 10 - 15 from.last years under 18s looked in better shape than their English counterparts and the under 18s looked to be in a similar shape to the English team. Previously the England lads have been far stronger and fitter.

The English defence committed less to the breakdown than Wales so when they did attack they had much more space. The English defence was a white line along the pitch. The English back's had more space to show what they could do than the Welsh. English pack looked bigger but Wales still had the edge on them.

Amusing one-liner from Andy Moore, ex Cardiff scrum half, who was commentating.
When responding to his co-commentator who suggested that the game was very enjoyable to watch since both sides wanted to attack and run with the ball, he replied.....
"well they've got their whole pro careers ahead of them to tackle and kick the ball away". Marvelous!

I see that Ian Botham's grandson (and Liam's son) played in the back row for Wales U18s against Scotland this weekend.

He sounds Welsh too, if that counts.

Will be interesting to see if he can make a decent career in sport. Liam gave up cricket to escape his dad's shadow, but arguably was only ever a journeyman winger.
