Former Crediton centre and Exeter Chief Sam Hill gets first try of season for England under-20s
FORMER Crediton centre Sam Hill scored his first try of the season for England under-20s as they took a step closer to retaining their Six Nations crown by thrashing Italy 52-7 at Northampton's Franklin Gardens.
Hill crossed after 20 minutes by exploiting a gap in the Italian defence and bulldozing his way over for a try that was converted by his Exeter Chiefs teammate Henry Slade.
Exeter Chiefs Jack Nowell also grabbed a brace in the match, while Callum Braley (Bristol) and Tom Stephenson (Northampton) also scored.
Slade added 17 points with his boot.

Head Coach Rob Hunter said that there is still work to be done: "It may sound churlish to say that we're unhappy after putting 52 points on the board but the reality is that we know we can play better.
"Next week is a big game, and we'll certainly be working very hard over the next few days to make sure we deliver a strong performance against Wales."
