ENGLAND Under-20 captain and Newcastle Falcons No 8 Alex Gray helped England to a 26-20 win over South Africa in the IRB Junior World Championship in Italy.

The victory earned Gray's side a semi-final showdown with France in Treviso on Wednesday. That game will be followed by Australia taking on New Zealand in the other lastfour clash.
