Two schoolboys from Harrow played starring roles as England U18s secured an impressive win over France.

Harrow School’s Elliott Obatoyinbo and Sean Reffell both started in the 43-14 victory at Aylesbury with full-back Obatoyinbo running in the first try.

Saracens team mate Oli Morris also started.

In tough conditions, the hosts deservedly led 12-7 at half-time with Cadan Murley getting the other first-half try.

He added another in the second half as England’s dominance continued with Cameron Redpath, Charlie Wright, Tom Seabrook and Ted Hill also getting on the scoresheet.

Head coach John Fletcher said: “I think the score is a fair reflection of how the game went and we are pleased with the performance. When we had the ball we made good decisions and without the ball we were physical and didn’t allow a strong French side to get on top.

“The players had to adapt to lots of different situations today in tricky conditions so for us that was really pleasing.

“We will make quite a few changes for the next game against Scotland to give other players an opportunity, but hopefully we will get a similar performance.”

That match against Scotland is this Sunday at Preston Grasshoppers and the 2pm kick-off will be streamed live on Englandrugby.com.
