Settle's Walker leads England to title
12:40pm Thursday 22nd March 2012 in North Ribblesdale
Settle’s Chris Walker captained England under-20s as they retained their RBS Six Nations trophy with a 20-9 victory over Ireland at Adams Park.
The Leeds Carnegie flanker, who was joined by clubmate Dominic Barrow in the back row, said: “It's an amazing feeling.
“We were hurting after the game against France the previous week and we wanted to right a few wrongs. I think we did that and we're over the moon with the win.
“Massive respect to Ireland though. They were always within touching distance and we never felt like the game was won, but we worked really hard as a team the forwards built the platform and the backs finished nicely.
“Dan Robson was brilliant at scrum half. He kept our tempo up throughout but it would be unfair just to pick him out it was a squad effort and I’m a proud man.”
Tries from Anthony Watson, Robson and Marland Yarde secured the win, while Tom Heathcote added five points with the boot.
Walker was replaced by London Irish's David Sisi after 65 minutes, Harlequin George Merrick coming on for Barrow after 47 minutes.
