GUS Jones described himself a “very happy boy” after his impressive four-try haul for England Under 20s at Kingston Park, Newcastle.

The Oxford University and Wasps flanker was named man-of-the-match for his salvo in England’s 67-7 Six Nations victory over Wales.

And afterwards Jones, whose family home is in Oxford, tweeted: “Very happy boy! Thanks for all the messages.

“Great to be part of that performance. Top work lads, on to the next one!”

Jones misses tomorrow night’s clash with Italy at Stadio Peroni (6) due to university commitments, but Leicester’s Henry Purdy, from Milton-under-Wychwood, is on the bench after starting at left wing against Wales.
