Harry McLaughlin-Phillips kicks Souths to victory over Jeeps in final hit-out before Junior World Cup

Young Souths’ flyhalf Harry McLaughlin-Phillips produced a mature and controlled performance to help the Magpies beat GPS 31-26 in his last Premier Rugby hit-out before leaving for the U20s World Cup.

Souths scored twice in the final 10 minutes to beat Jeeps and secure second spot on the Hospital Cup ladder, with McLaughlin-Phillips kicking 18 of his side’s 31 points at Yoku Road.

“It was a great result,” the flyhalf told Rugby News.

“We’ve won a few games away from home now and I don’t think we’d won at Yoku Road for quite a while now so that’s given the group plenty of confidence.

“We played a different sort of style to what we’d played in previous weeks but it was good to see that we can win games playing that way.”
