England Under 18 meet Ireland in Saturday’s FIRA/AER Championship final in Tarbes, France.

And they will be looking for a similar show of character that secured them a dramatic 38-34 win over Wales last weekend.

London Irish and St George’s College wing Anthony Watson, who scored England’s winning try in the dying minutes against the Welsh, knows the threat that Ireland pose.

“We played them in December (England won 29-12) but we are just going to try and play our game and see where that takes us,” said Watson.

“We are playing in Tarbes on Saturday in a 10,000-seater stadium but I don’t think that that is going to affect the boys too much because we are concentrating on trying to retain that trophy and bring it back to England.”
