Snubbed England star scores stunning 60m try on Premiership return

Adam Radwan scored a stunning try as Gloucester suffered back-to-back defeats as strugglers Newcastle claimed a surprise 27-21 win at Kingsholm.

Radwan outpaced the home defence with an arcing run to the corner.

Adam Radwan facts:

  • Radwan was released from the Newcastle Falcons academy when he was 18 before getting a call to say they needed a winger for an ‘A’ League game against Leicester
  • He was clocked by England reaching a top speed of 10.85 metres per second
  • Radwan, the proud son of an Egyptian father from Port Said is Yorkshire born and bred but with an appreciation and pride in his Egyptian heritage
  • Radwan actually needs glasses, but wears contact lenses most of the time

“Not good enough” – Three changes England must make for All Blacks clash

We take a look at three changes we think Eddie Jones should make ahead of their huge All Blacks clash at Twickenham next weekend.

#1. Jonny May

Telegraph 6/10: “Yellow carded for killing the ball scrambling back to stop Riley. Little threat in attack and looked rusty.”

The I 6/10: “Flew up and down the field in true Jonny May fashion. His kick chase was fast as per and helped force a knock on and pressure Japan catchers. His cover tackle on Dylan Riley, whilst impressive, resulted in a yellow card, however. But whether it’s rust or age, he’s starting to slow down it seems.”

Replacement: Tommy Freeman (Northampton Saints), Adam Radwan (Newcastle Falcons), Cadan Murley (Harlequins)
