JAMES Tirrell made his international rugby bow on Friday night.

The 19-year-old came on after 70 minutes as a replacement for England under-20s against the Scots.

Tirrell, the former Letchworth Rugby Club first teamer who now plays for Saracens, helped England to a comfortable 31-5 victory at the Recreation Ground in Bath.

Like the senior side, it was a successful launch to England's Six Nations campaign.
