Champions France defeat Wales

08/06/2019

Dragons duo Ed Scragg and Dafydd Buckland both started for Wales Under-20s but could not stop them sliding to a 32-13 defeat to defending champions France in the World U20 Championships in Rosario on Saturday afternoon.

The power and fluency of the French, who followed up their 32-10 Six Nations victory over Wales with another convincing triumph, was too much for Dewi Lake’s side and not even their wonderful defence was enough to save them.

In the end, a stream of off loads by the French and more than 30 missed tackles from Wales allowed the champions to notch their second win of the tournament.

Scarlets wing Tomi Lewis scored two tries for Wales who now face Fiji in their final pool game on Wednesday.
