Highlights: Ireland v England

Ireland’s difficult Under-20 Six Nations Summer Series campaign ended on a high note with a late 37-36 win against England.

Despite the result, Ireland finish bottom of Pool A, with England, who started the day in third, picking up a try and losing bonus point to carry them above France and into second.

Ireland had a late Sam Prendergast penalty to thank for victory, while their first-half scores came from Fionn Gibbons, James McCormick, Lorcan McLoughlin and a penalty try.

England finished with six tries to their name but still fell on the wrong side of the result, with two conversions striking the upright ultimately costing them. George Hendy, Alex Harnes, Lewis Chessum, Mikey Summerfield and Iwan Stephens crossed for Alan Dickens’ side.
