HENRY Purdy was among the try scorers as England hammered Scotland 48-15 in the Under 20 Six Nations at Galashiels.

The Leicester back, from Milton-under-Wychwood, helped England to a first win of this year’s championship with their opening score.

Wing Purdy made space for himself and touched down just wide of the posts after Scotland had taken the lead with an early penalty from fly half Ben Chalmers.
