Slade helps England open with a big win
PLYMOUTH rugby star Henry Slade helped England Under-20s make a winning start to their Junior World Cup campaign in South Africa.
Fly-half Slade, The Herald's young sports personality of the year in 2011, kicked four conversions and a penalty as England beat Italy 64-5 yesterday.
The 19-year-old former Plymouth College pupil, who is contracted to Premiership side Exeter Chiefs but played for Albion last season, finished with a 100 per cent kicking record before being replaced in the 56th minute.
England scored nine tries in total, with Exeter prop Luke Cowan-Dickie, who turned out for Albion last season as a dual registered player, scoring the fourth.
