Great Scott: Spurling's winning start

articlemain

Rugby Union: Scott Spurling made a winning start to his England career helping the Under 18 team to a 64-0 victory over Italy in Sale.

The Saracens hooker came off the bench when Nathan Morris took a punch in the face from flanker Lorenzo Favaro.

Playing his first game following injuries in October, Spurling said: "It was an amazing experience. I was happy with my performance and fitness."

Spurling will join the Saracens' senior academy next July after completing A-levels at Harrow School where he is on a sports scholarship. He hopes to make England's next squad for the match against Scotland on March 27.
