First published in Sport

CALLUM Braley has helped England under-20s reach the semi-finals of the Junior World Championship in New Zealand.

The scrum half from Coalpit Heath captained the side in their 17-16 win over Argentina in Auckland on Tuesday, which set up a last four match against Ireland at the QBE Stadium in North Harbour on Sunday.

Braley said: “We’re looking forward to the semi-final now. We’re three games into a five game competition and have two massive matches coming up.”

Bristol star Braley also came on as a second half replacement in the 38-24 win over Australia in the QBE Stadium last Friday with several members of the England senior squad currently on tour in New Zealand watching on.
