England Youth completed an Easter Weekend double over France with a convincing 38-6 victory at the Mend-a-hose Jungle, Castleford.
A strong first half display with tries from Jack Welsby, Dominic Young, Corey Johnson, Cameron Lees and three conversions for Harvey Spence gave England a 22-0 lead at the break.

The second half started much like the first with England crossing early, this time through Thomas Holroyd before Yoann Reynaud grabbed a converted try for the visitors.
England's defence held strong for the remainder of the game as they kept France to a solitary score.
In the closing quarter Jack Welsby got his second try of the game before Dominic Young rounded off the scoring in the dying seconds with his second try.
