England U20 get under way with win over Scotland U20

Sam HillEngland U20 have began the defence of their Six Nations crown with a 15-6 win over Scotland in Plymouth tonight.
Scotland fly-half Tommy Allan put the visitors in front with an early penalty but the English were rewarded for their dominance in the scrum with a penalty try to lead 7-3 on the half hour mark.
But the Scots closed the gap with another Allan’s penalty to trail by a single point at the break.
Exeter’s Henry Slade extended the lead with a penalty before his club teammate Luke Cowan-Dickie, who was outstanding in the loose, sealed the win with a powerful finish five minutes from time.
