Hartlepool’s Michael Young stars for England Saxons rugby union team

Have your say

HARTLEPOOL rugby star Michael Young will be hoping he has done enough to have booked himself a place at the Churchill Cup final.

England Saxons take on Canada next Sunday at Worcester after hammering Tonga 41-14 at Gloucester yesterday.

After starting in last week’s 87-8 drubbing of the US Eagles, Young yesterday began on the bench before coming on for the impressive Paul Hodgson for the final 27 minutes at Kingsholm.

And Hodgson hailed the work of the pack as the hosts hammered a game but outgunned Tongans.
