World Rugby Under 20 Championship Matchday 3 Round-Up

Date: 13 Jun 2019


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

Tom Willis was on the scoresheet for England Under 20s as they beat Australia Under 20s in Santa Fe 56-33 on Wednesday.

Having lost their opening fixture of the tournament to Ireland, before beating Italy in match two, the result means they finish third in their pool and cannot advance to the top four of the Championship.

They will next face Ireland in the fifth-place play-off on Monday, 17 June, KO 7.30pm BST, in Rosario, Argentina with New Zealand and Wales making up the other half of the draw.

Wasps Academy back Cameron Anderson was also in the Scotland Under 20s squad which suffered a last minute try to lose 17-12 against Georgia Under 20s.

Scotland will face Italy in the ninth-place semi-final on Monday, 17 June, KO 2.30pm BST
