U20 6 nations 2024

It's in the Times, it must be true….

Ferte 41, Tuilagi 33, Carbonneau 31 and Massa 23 all individually have more than the entire England team. 3 more on 20 plus.

Tuilagi has more senior caps than all bar 2 of ours have pro games.

Our top is Asher O-F with 8 which probably equates to a couple of hours actual game time.
England stats are wrong right off the bat,
Asher has played 10 times for Sale,

By my(/all.rugby's) reckoning England are on 82

Guessing they're only counting Prem games, not Europe or Prem Cup, which feels disingenuous - Prem Cup is still senior pro rugby
Shame Afolabi Fasogbon isn't in the England side - could've faced off with Tuilagi for the ***le of "Biggest teenager I've ever seen in my life"

On the pro appearances stat above, is O'Connor our only player who's played in competitive fixtures? Gleeson pre injury obviously as well.
Finally, the Italy 10 actually looks u20. Can't say that for many other players across all nations.
Ref has been ok so far, but he just ****** that decision.

Wales mauling over the try line, Italy 5 and 6 dragged it down, no penalty try or card, just a warning...

Ridiculous decision
England should have taken the 3 points. Get the win first then worry about BPs. Bit naive from them.
