Gargrave's Taylor Prell and Settle's Jack Walker help England u-18s beat Wales
Updated 1:58pm Thursday 27th March 2014 in Sport
Two Craven boys played key roles as England defeated Wales 43-12 in Sunday’s under-18 international at Neath.
Prell, who made his senior debut for Wharfedale a week earlier in their 54-15 Yorkshire Cup win over Cleckheaton, is a student at Giggleswick School, and took the accolade despite Saracens wing George Perkins scoring a hat-trick of tries for England.
Walker, who attends Prince Henry’s Grammar School in Otley said: “I was massively proud of all the lads today – everyone put in a big shift and we’re pleased to get the result after a good performance.
"Wales put up a real fight and made it tough for us, but credit to our guys, we got over the gain-line well and deserved to get the win in the end.”
