VIDEO - Heathcote hoping England Under 20 make statement

21 June 2012

  • Returning fly half Heathcote ready for Australia
  • We want to make a statement – Heathcote

England Under 20 fly half Tom Heathcote says he is looking forward to facing Australia and hopes that his side call pull together and get a result in the IRB Junior World Championship.

The 20-year-old Bath No. 10 said: "We’re looking forward to going out there and making a statement. The boys have been pretty disappointed after our last two performances [a 28-15 loss to South Africa and a 27-12 loss to Ireland] but we’ve got one game to put things right, end on a high, and everyone is massively excited by that chance.

He added: "We’ve done some analysis on Australia and they’re a good side. They have some good athletes and strong backs and we know that if we’re going to win we’re going to have to play to our peak."
