England Under-20 prop Joe Marler admitted some strong words at halftime inspired their 41-14 defeat of Wales.
From trailing 8-6 at the break, England ran in five tries – two of which scored by Marler – even with Alex Gray being sent off.
And Marler maintains that turnaround came from coach Mark Mapletoft’s inspiring talk.
“It was all about belief,” he said. “We've got the ability and the talent and it's about believing in ourselves.
“In the first half it wasn't there and it took a few words at half-time to make us realise we were a better side than what we did in the first half.
“It's great to see the forwards handling and offloading and that's what the game's all about. You don't want to play for your country and not enjoy yourselves and it's good that we're allowed to play that way.
“England against Wales is always a tough game, I was really looking forward to the confrontation and in the second half we just did the best we can.
“The sending off [of Alex Gray] just spurred us on. The fact that it had happened made us work even harder and it shows the unity in the side that we just didn't panic.”
