Ollie Sleightholme was among the try scorers when he became the second future Saint to make an England Under-18 debut in two weeks, following in the international footsteps of fellow Academy starlet Samson Ma'asi. 

The winger - who will join Saints full-time this summer along with hooker Ma'asi - crossed for one of six tries in a 42-14 win over Wales on Sunday afternoon.

Ma'asi, meanwhile, made his first international start at Under-18 level the previous weekend in a thumping 64-0 defeat of Scotland at Murrayfield.
