England's Academy will face Parramatta juniors in their next game

England's academy team made a winning start to their four-match tour of Australia with a 28-18 victory over New South Wales juniors at Narrabeen.

The tourists twice came from behind and scored three tries in the the last 10 minutes to clinch the win.

Wigan half-back Ryan Hampshire scored England's first try and sent Warrington winger James Saltonstall over for another to give his side a 10-4 half-time lead.

New South Wales scored two quick tries early in the second half to go 18-10 in front but Warrington second rower Ben Currie touched down twice before St Helens centre Greg Wilde added a fifth try, with Hampshire kicking his fourth goal.

England continue preparations for their two-Test series against the Australian Schoolboys by taking on Parramatta juniors on Saturday.
