England U20s in great form against Canada

  • +1

England Women U20s have now played two of the three matches in their summer series against Canada.

The first match (Thursday 18 August) ended 46-8 to the England girls as they cruised past Canada scoring eight tries on the way.

The England tries were scored by Jess Breach (3) Kelly Smith, Lottie Holland, Millie Wood, Sarah Bern and Chantelle Miell. Zoe Harrison kicked two conversions and Langi Tuima also added one.

Canada scored a penalty through Taejah Thompson in the first half and a second-half try by Zana Everett.

For the second match (Monday 22 August) Jo Yapp made 5 changes but this hardly slowed the team down as they strode to a 39-12 victory scoring just the seven tries this time.

The England women established a 22-5 lead at the break through Abi Dow’s hat trick and a try from Sally Stott with Zoe Harrison kicking a conversion.

Kasselle Menin scored Canada U20’s only points of the first half.

England’s second half tries were scored by Poppy Leitch, Abi Dow and Sarah Bern with Lagilagi Tuima kicking a conversation.

Jordyn Orlando scored Canada’s only try of the second half.

The stage is now set for the final game on Friday.
