U18s Six Nations round-up: England slip to opening defeat

Two of Bristol Academy’s young guns were in action during the opening weekend of the U18 Six Nations Festival in Ystrad Mynach.

England – who included Blake Boyland at scrum half – went down 32-27 to Nathan Chamberlain’s Scotland U18s.

England led at the interval through tries from Alfie Barbeary, Ollie Sleightholme and Reece Dunn, but Scotland hit back after the interval to clinch a nailbiting victory.
