LEWIS McKISSICK scored two tries as the England Colleges squad trounced Belgium 72-6 while on tour in Brussels at the weekend.

It was the first time winger McKissick, 18, has pulled on an England shirt.

He starts his studies at the University of Gloucestershire in September and is hoping to make his debut for the All Golds rugby league side in the coming weeks.

England head coach Dean Reacher said: “The lads did really well, applying themselves in difficult situations. It was a really hot day and there were a couple of early injuries, but the players adapted fantastically.

“The Belgium open age side did not stop for 80 minutes, so credit to their team.”
