England Under-20s are within touching distance of the World Rugby Under-20s semi-finals after a second bonus-point victory, beating Scotland 44-0.
Bath Rugby-bound skipper Jack Walker got the ball rolling with the opening try, and England kicked on with five tries in all against a Scottish team who had beaten them earlier this year in the Six Nations.
After Walker’s effort, Leicester Tigers flanker Will Evans, a replacement in the Aviva Premiership Rugby semi-final clash with Saracens, scored on his Under-20s debut.
That was followed by a score from London Irish’s Johnny Williams after a great break from winger Sam Aspland-Robinson.
Harry Mallinder converted all three tries, while also chipping in with two penalties as England led 27-0.
Replacement hooker Jack Singleton of Worcester Warriors then scored the bonus-point try, converted by Max Malins, and the Saracens man finished things off with a try of his own, which he converted to seal the win.
Next up for England is Australia, and victory would guarantee a semi-final spot and potentially the top seed in the last four.
