ITALY 23-30 IRELAND
Despite having suffered a try before five minutes (Eoin de Buitléar), Italy showed a good rugby passage and managed to overcome. Simone Gesi, Tommaso Di Bartolomeo and Leonardo Marin marked the conquests in the first half for La Azzurra, while it was George Saunderson who supported for the visit. In this way, things were 23-12 at halftime. However, in the second stage El Trébol pressed the accelerator and with a double from Alex Kendellen and a conversion and two penalties from Nathan Doak ended up closing the victory.
FRANCE 45-21 SCOTLAND
France, despite playing part of the game with one less, beat Scotland and does not lose track of England and Ireland. The French team got off to a frenzy, scoring three tries in the opening minutes of the match. However, an early expulsion of Reybier, who was the author of one of the conquests, changed the panorama of an encounter that seemed to be painted blue. With one more, Scotland was encouraged to look for the comeback and managed to reduce the difference to 10 points. But France managed to react in time and, with tries from Barré, Baudonne and Idjellidaine, sentenced their victory.
WALES 3-45 ENGLAND
England returned to teach in this Six Nations U20 and thrashed in a forceful way to Wales, who despite starting winning did not manage to maintain the advantage. The U20 Six Nations leaders reacted quickly to the Welsh converted penalty and scored their first try at the hands of Jack Clement within three minutes of the match. Once England scored points, they did not let go of the accelerator and culminated another great victory to stay as the leader of the tournament with 20 points.
