England U21 14-29 New Zealand U21
Two tries from Lelia Masaga and 17 points from the boot of Stephen Brett were enough to end the hopes of the England Under-21 team in Vichy.

Tries from James Haskell and Topsi Ojo at the Stade Darragon, both converted by Toby Flood, kept England in the hunt but they were unable to close the gap.

Coach Jim Mallinder said: "We started well, putting them under pressure.

"Unfortunately we couldn't finish and once we were behind we started to panic and they punished us."
