“This England squad is an absolute joy to watch” – How social media reacted to England Knights’ win over Jamaica

A 56-4 triumph at the expense of Jamaica was the perfect return for the England Knights. As plenty of young Super League stars got their first taste of international rugby, the team played some superb rugby as they ran in 10 tries against the Jamaicans. It was a good runout as the England youngsters showed their promise for the future. That’s my take anyway, but what was yours? How did social media react to last night’s rugby?

Unsurprisingly, Will Pryce stole the show with a magnificent solo try and a neat assist for Ellis Longstaff. It got fans excited about what he might do in the future for the senior England side.

His performance got plenty of fans outside Huddersfield wanting their clubs to poach the youngster including Leeds and St Helens supporters. Mikey Lewis received similar treatment as well.

Another youngster also grabbed attention. Jack Broadbent scored two tries including a length of the field effort to open the scoring and received plenty of praise.

In fact, Leeds fans were impressed with all three Rhinos youngsters who featured last night.

But then again, they were impressed by the entire squad. It’s true that they looked like a special outfit.

Some supporters got themselves into an argument about the 2000 fans in attendance with some arguing that the crowd size was disappointing and that a different ground should’ve been used. Meanwhile, others pointed out that the game was organised by Jordan Turner for his testimonial. As a Castleford player, he would’ve been quite happy to play the game there.
