Ewels and Jennings secure U20s glory

23 March 2015

Two members of the Bath Rugby Academy were crucial to England U20s' raising of the Six Nations Championship trophy on Friday, in what was a winner-takes-all encounter against France in Brighton. 

The Community Stadium will play host to several fixtures in this year's World Cup, and it set the scene for a 24-11 success for Charlie Ewels and Rory Jennings, both of whom were instrumental in ensuring France didn't win the U20s title for a second successive season. 

Captain Ewels, the second row who will next season make the step up to the Bath Rugby senior squad, was a towering presence throughout England's campaign, which soared after an opening weekend loss to Wales in Parc Eirias. Fly-half Jennings, a member of the Senior Academy, was a constant threat with the boot, and against Les Bleuets kicked 14 points from the tee. 

This summer, England will take head into the Junior World Championship in Italy as defending champions, buoyed by claiming a fourth U20s Six Nations title in the last five years.
