No report yet, but a good result for our boys (19 - 61; 2 x T for Robin and points off the boot for Matt). More bits and pieces at:

Hmmm... not exactly encyclopedic, but here's the official report:

englandrugby.com

Apparently, the bench was emptied in the course of the match, so everyone got some game time. It's all a run up for the "big" game on Sat v a Spain XV, which will be a much sterner test. Sounds like good experience all round, I reckon.

No report yet and couldn't get that link to work, but there are some pics on Facebook:

First Half

Second Half


Nile at 4 and Shep at 15 (maybe Robin at 11?). EC did well first half (HT: 7 - 33), Spanish bench made a difference in second, but not enough. Final score:

Spain 28 - 45 EC.

Our lads flagged in final quarter due to heat and for some, third game in six days. Testing game, so good experience all round.

Well done to the Counties - was good to follow the tour matches online through the Twitter feed and a great achievement for the boys to play.
