Young England side beat Barbarians by 14 points

LONDON (Reuters) - A youthful England side made the most of their chances to beat the Barbarians 28-14 at Twickenham on Sunday.

They led 13-0 at halftime, having opened the scoring with a converted try by Nathan Earle of Saracens, one of eight new caps in the starting XV.

A try by Australian Adam Ashley-Cooper put the Barbarians back in contention but Earle’s club mate Nick Isiekwe went over to extend the lead to 23-7 before a late try by Samoan Joe Tekori.

Danny Care crossed the line to have the last word for England.

Head coach Eddie Jones’s side are preparing for a two-match test series in Argentina, on 10 June and 17 June.
