This meant that the English boys had to win the Second Test by more than 2 points or else the French would win the series. England took a 10-0 lead at half time. After the break the French pulled the scores back to 10-8. but then a whitewash of tries came from England making the final score 36-8 which won the test series for England. Adam played in the second game and was unfortunate in having a try disallowed.
