Wales Under-20s suffered their second defeat of the Six Nations as holders England ran in six tries at the Stoop.

Outside half Sam Davies had given Wales the lead with a drop goal after 12 minutes but England responded emphatically.

Tries from Josh Bassett and Anthony Watson gave the home side the lead although two Davies penalties reduced to the gap to 15-9 at the interval.

But second half tries from Sam Hill, Luke Cowan-Dickie, Marland Yarde and another from Watson secured England's ninth successive win in the championship.
