Scotland under-20 Head Coach, Sean Lineen, said: “It was a tough start, with a few set-piece errors letting us down, but I’m proud of the second-half as we really worked hard for each other.

“The guys will be tired after that game – it was tough for the full 80 minutes and our boys gave it everything.

“They [England] had some real quality players that posed a challenge, but we never gave up and scored a cracking try in the second-half.

“It’s all part of that learning curve, and, maybe, we just gave them a bit too much respect early on this time around.”
