England Under 18s completed the three-peat with a hard-fought 34-17 victory against Scotland at Lightfoot Green, the home of the Preston Grasshoppers.
The first team had secured an emphatic 62-21 win a day earlier, lifting the Calcutta Cup – the prize awarded to the winner of the annual clash between England and Scotland – as well as retaining their Six Nations crown.
The women’s side put in an equally dominant performance, running in 12 tries to complete a whitewash over the Scots.
The signs were ominous early on as England’s Charlie Wright set up a Joe Tunney break away try but Scotland responded, scoring against the run of play, with Harry Butler scoring a pick and go try.
Flanker Aaron Hinkley ensured England went in 12-7 ahead at the break, running in from 20 metres out after a stolen lineout.
Just moments after the break fly-half Tom Hardwick crashed over, as England’s repeated pressure broke through Scotland’s defence once more.
Five minutes later a charge down try from Ross Thompson reduced the arrears for the Scottish age-grade side, managed by head coach Grant McKelvey.
Cameron Redpath crashed over to put England back in the ascendency before Tom Seabrook made sure of victory, scoring off a driving maul.
