If Wales do not improve on their opening performance at the Junior World Cup in Italy, when they face the reigning World Champions, England Under 20s, in Calvisano on Saturday, they will find themselves effectively eliminated with still one Pool match still left to play. Wales Under 20s were left stunned by a scintillating start by the French, who scored two tries in the first 13 minutes of the match, to lead 12-0, and only dogged Welsh defence kept Les Bleuets at bay. It was only when the game was lost, with the French leading 19-3, that the Welsh finally found some positive attacking response. However, a 10-19 loss has not done much for their hopes of a semi-final spot.

England, the winners of the last two tournaments, opened the defence of their title with the expected comfortable win against Japan, the final score being 59-10.England were so dominant that they led by 45-0 at half time. Although his gave coach, Jon Callard a chance to empty his bench, and give all his squad some valuable match time, their cohesion was lost as the result, and the Japanese gave a much more creditable second half showing.

Although Wales defeated England in the 6-Nations, before the Red Rose went on to take the title, it was a backs to the wall victory, and it is difficult to see them repeat the same outcome on Saturday.
