Chichester trio help England further down road to rugby glory

England under-20s were aided by their Chichester trio as they emulated the senior rugby union side and beat France to make it three wins from three in their Six Nations tournament.

Kieran Low of London Irish and Charlie Matthews of Harlequins both started the 19-8 win at Worcester while Rob Buchanan, also from Harlequins, came off the bench in the second half.

All three learned their rugby as juniors at Chichester RFC.

It puts them in with a great chance of the under-20 Grand Slam.

There wasn’t such good news for Chichester High School for Girls PE teacher Ashley Rowlands, who plays for the Welsh women’s side.

The Wasps player was part of the team who lost 12-8 to Italy in their third match.
