Former Cambridge Rugby Club junior Fraser Dingwall scores try on England senior debut against Wales in Six Nations

Fraser Dingwall enjoyed a senior England debut at Twickenham to remember on Saturday.

Appearing in just his second Test, the former Cambridge Rugby Club junior dotted down his first international try to help England complete a come-from-behind 16-14 win over Wales in the Six Nations.

Cambridge-born Dingwall, who plays his club rugby for Northampton Saints in the Gallagher Premiership, went over in the 63rd minute to move England to within a point of their visitors.

George Ford was off-target with the subsequent conversion, but he eventually sealed victory via a penalty with eight minutes remaining.

Reflecting on his try, 24-year-old Dingwall said: “Essentially the forwards were battering the door down and created space, so we

as backs just had to pick it off.

“I just managed to put myself on the edge. I kept Elliot Daly inside me knowing the ball would end up with me and I could hopefully get

the score.

“It’s all a bit of a blur but the emotions that ran through me after were crazy – everything came out of me.”

Another player born in Cambridge – Alex Coles – also featured in the victory as a replacement.

The former Perse School pupil, who is a club team-mate of Dingwall, played his junior rugby at both Cambridge and Shelford Rugby Clubs.
