Disappointment for Dawe as England U20 beaten in final

Ollie Dawe featured off the bench as England were defeated 64-17 by New Zealand in the final of the World Rugby U20 Championship in Georgia.

They trailed 40-7 at the break with New Zealand scoring tries through Dalton Papali'I, Pouri Rakete-Stones, Asafo Aumua (2), Isaia Walker-Leawere and Luke Jacobson, with Stephen Perofeta contributing 10 points.

England's try came from Ben Earl, which Max Malins converted.

Josh McKay and Alex Mitchell traded tries after the break before New Zealand added to their lead through Aumua and Tom Christie.

Josh Bayliss scored England's third score while Jacobson had a second and the final try of the game.

McKay had try number seven for New Zealand before they were reduced to 14 men with Ezekiel Lindenmuth sent to the bin.

Mitchell came on for Randall and made an immediate impact sniping through with a quick tap and go to score.

Aumua scored hat trick as New Zealand hit 50 and Christie barged over for a ninth try before replacement James Grayson produced a moment of magic to send a kick over the New Zealand defence and into the hands of Bayliss who bundled over in the corner.

However, New Zealand had the final say, Jacobson powering through which Perofeta converted in the final action of the game.
