Honiton teenager Charlie Wright was again part of the England Under-18 team that took to the pitch for their third game of the season at the weekend.

Wright, who attends Exeter College and is also on the books at Exeter Chiefs, wore the number seven jersey for the England Under-18s in the match against Wales U18 at Eugene Cross Park home of Ebbw Vale RFC.

The match resulted in a first defeat of the season for England, beaten 29-19 on the night.

Two tries from number eight Sam Moore had given England a 12-10 lead at the break before an impressive fight-back from the hosts in the second half.

A score from Dewi Cross, Harri Morgan and a penalty try was enough to see Wales secure victory.
