Tigers forward scores winning try for England

By James Wynn

Leicester Tigers prop Ellis Genge scored England’s only try as they beat Scotland 13-6 at Murrayfield to win the Calcutta Cup.

The seven point victory was England’s first of the 2020 Six Nations campaign, and meant that England won the annual trophy for the first time since 2017.

Out of the five Tigers players to make England’s Six Nations squad, only George Ford and Jonny May started the match.

Genge came on as a 57th substitute to score the try, with his teammate Ben Youngs entering the field two minutes later.

Centre Manu Tuilagi is currently suffering a groin injury.
