VIDEO - Mills and Robson look back on Italy win

05 June 2012

  • England Under 20 pair Ryan Mills and Dan Robson reflect on win
  • Nine-try victory over Italy puts England top of Pool B


England Under 20 pair Ryan Mills and Dan Robson look back on their 64-5 win against Italy and say that the next game against Ireland is going to be a tough test.

The Gloucester duo both scored in the nine-try win, but scrum half Robson says that Italy more than played their part in the Pool B opener.

"It was a great win," he said. "Italy battled all the way and pushed us really hard - particularly in the first 20 minutes, but we managed to come through and get the result."

Mills, playing his first rugby in almost two months due to knee injury, added: "It's great to be back playing again, particularly in an England shirt, and the win was just a great was to kick off our Junior World Championship."

On the Irish challenge Mills said: "They've won a massive game against South Africa, so congratulations to them for that, but we know that they'll now be full of confidence and will have a lot of momentum."

England Under 20's second IRB Junior World Championship game against Ireland kicks off at 17:45 (BST) live on Sky Sports HD.
