Rugby Union: England find their rhythm and take five
Friday 04 June 1993
Such fluency as the tourists achieved came in the face of some fussy refereeing by Ian Hyde-Lay, who was in charge of his first international match. He awarded 43 penalties and on two occasions was asked about his interpretation of the tackle law by England's captain Nigel Redman.
After an early setback, when Ontario's right wing Courtney Smith scored an excellent individual try, England gradually asserted control at the set-pieces and in the loose.
Paul Grayson cut the deficit with a penalty and then converted a try by Stuart Potter after the Leicester centre had intercepted a poor drop out. Just before the interval, England's pack drove for the Ontario line and the flanker Matt Greenwood broke off to score.
In the second half England spread the ball wide and Potter burst through for a second try. Nick Beal, playing at full-back, stepped inside the cover to add England's fourth try and the scrum-half Steve Douglas dived over from a scrum in the final minutes.
Grayson took his tally to 15 points with two penalties and two conversions.
