Dragons help Under-20s stun England


Dragons stars Aneurin Owen, Will Griffiths, Ed Scragg, Ben Carter and Dafydd Buckland helped Wales Under-20s to a magnificent 23-22 win over England at Kingsholm on Friday evening to continue the fightback in the Six Nations.

After opening defeats to Italy and Ireland, Jac Morgan’s men have now beaten the double World Junior champions France and England in successive games to haul themselves off the bottom of the table.

It was the first time in four years that Wales had won on English soil and they thoroughly deserved their victory despite having to come from behind in the final eight minutes to seal the deal.

Sam Costelow had set-up a try for his half-back partner Ellis Bevan to help win the game over France in Colwyn Bay and his twinkle-toes were at it again in Gloucester as he twice carved open the English defence to create outstanding tries.

The first went to centre Bradley Roderick, while the Scarlets-bound outside half scored the second himself. He converted both, kicked two penalties and edged Wales back into the lead in the 75th minute with a nerveless drop goal.
