Wales 14-33 England

England’s rolling maul was the defining feature of their win over Wales, with Craig Wright getting them up and running with the first try from a rolling maul six minutes in, making it 8-0 after an earlier penalty.

Wales hit straight back with a delightful try finished off by Lucas de la Rua after lovely offloads from Rhodri Lewis and Harri Ackerman.

A second maul try from Wright put England back in front at 13-7, but despite a yellow card reducing Wales to 14, they were next to score. Full-back Isaac Morgan ran a great line to burst over, the conversion making it 14-13.

England had the final say in the first half though, Connor Cross finishing off a brilliant team score to make it 18-14 at the break.

After a relatively even first half, it was England who dominated the second, Finn Carnduff extending their lead before another maul try, this time replacement hooker Charlie Smith was the beneficiary. A late penalty from Morgan Meredith wrapped up the points for England.
