Former Bishop's Stortford youngster Max Malins made his full England debut in their dramatic Guinness Six Nations victory over France at Twickenham




Former Bishop's Stortford youngster Max Malins made his full England debut in their dramatic Guinness Six Nations victory over France on Saturday.

He played at full-back in the 23-20 success at Twickenham having made his first appearance for his country as a replacement in November's Autumn Nations Cup win over Georgia.

Malins, who attended Felsted School and helped Stortford's under-13s win the Harpenden Festival in 2009, was replaced by Elliot Daly with 17 minutes remaining as the hosts triumphed thanks to Maro Itoje's late try.

The versatile 24-year-old made his way into head coach Eddie Jones' starting line-up having been performing well for Bristol during a productive loan spell from Saracens.

In addition to Itoje's score and the 13 points from the boot of captain Owen Farrell, Anthony Watson notched up his fourth try of the tournament in his 50th Test.

Wales' win over Italy earlier in the day means England's victory can not lead to a renewed push to defend their crown.

But Malins will be hoping to gain further big-game experience when Jones' men travel to Dublin to take on Ireland on Saturday.
