RFUW TDG XV complete junior double

My thanks to a Welsh reader who has provided some detail about the TDG game that preceded yesterday's U20 international:
"The English TDG side won 30-7 over the Welsh TDG. England had the use of the elements in the first half and took full advantage to ease out to a 25-0 half-time lead. The second half was much more competitive - the Welsh fullback scored a fine solo try and a few other chances weren't taken to make the final scoreline closer.
From a Welsh (non-official) viewpoint the fixture was extremely worthwhile and hopefully the TDG process will continue for the future. This was the first group to be selected and the process of bringing that group together was only started a fortnight ago-and finished over the weekend prior to the game." 
If the Welsh TDG system has only been running for a few weeks, that is a pretty impressive performance against a  squad that has been together since September. It would indeed make a bit of sense - and provide some extra focus - if the TDG system could build to an annual climax, such as a game against Wales. It could only benefit future internationals to have a taste of what is to come. Indeed it would make even more sense if we could call the squad England U18s (like the boys do), but one step at a time maybe...
