World Rugby Under 20 Championship Matchday 2 Round-Up

Date: 10 Jun 2019


Wasps Academy had two players involved in the second round of this year’s World Rugby Under 20 Championship in Argentina.

Tom Willis was on the scoresheet for England Under 20s as they edged Italy Under 20s in Santa Fe 24-23 on Saturday.

Meanwhile in their pool, Australia defeated Ireland 45-17 meaning it's all to play for in the third and final round of the pools as England go head-to-head with the men from Down Under.

Wasps Academy back Cameron Anderson was also in the Scotland Under 20s squad which picked up a bonus point against New Zealand Under 20s despite going down 52-33.

In the 13-try thriller, Scotland went over five times but couldn't defeat the Baby Blacks who are on course for the semi-finals, along with Australia, South Africa and France. 

Scotland's final pool game is against Georgia on Wednesday.
