England Under 19 went down 35-22 in a friendly fixture against France U19 at Stade Jules Ladoumègue, Massy.

The home side impressed early in the game and led 18-3 at half-time with Northampton Saints fly-half James Grayson kicking a penalty for England just before the break.

England improved in an open second half and it was No 8 Sam Moore who powered over the line to score the first try of the game for the visitors.

England added further second half tries from Ted Hill and Harlequins’ Dino Lamb-Cona, however it wasn’t enough to prevent the defeat as France finished the game 35-22 winners.

England Player Pathway Coach Peter Walton said: “Nobody likes to lose, however, we have all learnt a lot from this game and it has been very worthwhile.

“The players have really enjoyed the experience and I think they can take a lot of credit from how they performed in the second half, it is how we want them to play and they really showed their quality.”
