Worcester Warriors ace Matt Kvesic was delighted to claim an England Under-20s win on home soil as the flanker played a key role in the 19-8 victory over France Under-20s in the final game of Super Sunday.
Rob Hunter’s side secured their 9-point victory courtesy of a tenth minute try from Northampton Saints wing Jamie Elliott and 14 points from the right boot of Leicester Tigers fly half George Ford.
The win keeps their unbeaten 6 Nations campaign intact as they prepare to take on Scotland in Newbury in two weeks time.
“A win was the most important thing today and thankfully we got that so can’t ask for much more,” said Kvesic.
“The boys did very well but it was a tough game out there and the conditions weren’t the best, France are a very good side and there are a few bruised bodies in the changing room.
“From a personal point of view I just tried to concentrate as if it was any other game. Obviously it’s nice to play on your home ground and I had a few friends and family down to watch so it was good knowing I had a bit of home support but at the end of the day it was a Test match against France that we had to win, i'd have been happy playing on a field in the middle of nowhere.
“We’ve got a couple of weeks until the next game so I’ll have a good week with Worcester and a bit of rest and recovery time before we get back together ready to play Scotland all guns blazing.”
