Match report

England overcame Wales at U18 level, winning 32-16, but they’ll need to wait six weeks before knowing if they’re champions.
Their win puts England top of the table with two wins out of three and a points difference of plus 44. Ireland and Scotland meet at the end of October and both are on negative points differences, Ireland on minus 14 and Scotland on minus 28, so a big win is needed by one of those Celtic nations to take the title.
Wales, who are now guaranteed second or third place in the table, went 12-0 down early on in the game through Dylan Grears and Tom Farren with Harley Nelson converting both, but a Harrison Doe try in the corner just before the break gave them hope.
England quickly extended their lead as five minutes into the second half, they were 22-4 up. First Joshua Blinkhorn scored near the corner, then Devan Sharp’s try under the sticks made it easy for George Jamieson to convert.
Wales refused to give up and Alex Banks’ try and Alex Banks’ try, converted by Llewellyn Hawkes, brought them back into the game.
But England sealed the game as Blinkhorn scored a brace to complete his hat-trick with Jamieson converting once. Jayden Grey got a late consolation try for Wales that Hawkes improved.
