England lads patched up and fired up says Skipper

With his fellow players patched up after a bruising encounter with their Scotland counterparts, the England Universities captain, Jacob Morgan – while happy with their win against Scotland – believes that his side can only improve ahead of their finals appearance.

“We were sloppy in areas; in the second half we weren’t completing our sets and making some some stupid errors,” he said.

“Fair play to Scotland, they gave us a really good dig though, and were aggressive down the middle. Credit to our boys, they really got fired up and it was actually a good game of football, so really pleased with our performance.”

Morgan also spoke of the honour to represent his country in a tough competition.

“Its massive. You represent a massive body of people, and such a proud nation when it comes to rugby league.

“Especially when you playing over here in Australia, it’s something else. So hopefully we can kick-on when we come up against the Aussies and get some good results.”
