  • England finished second in Birmingham tournament
  • The lose out to Ireland in the final

England Women U18 Sevens finished runners-up in the second leg of the Home Nations U18 Sevens after losing out 19-26 to Ireland in the final.

Three tries from Loughborough Lightning flanker Amelia Harper were not enough to hold off Ireland, who came away undefeated having also taken the first leg in Edinburgh earlier in the month.

England got off to a winning start on Saturday at the University of Birmingham-hosted tournament, with a 46-0 win over Scotland before losing 7-31 to Ireland.

In their final game of the opening day England drew 17-17 with Wales after tries from Lucy Burgess, Ella Lovibond and Flo Robinson.

This led them to face Wales again in the first play-off on day two, with England coming away 26-5 winners following tries from Shauna Bennett (2), Amelia Harper and Lucy Burgess.

Team coach James Cooper said: “The two legs of the Home Nations U18 Sevens have been hugely beneficial. It has allowed us to give 20 players experience of international rugby, many for the first time. It will have highlighted to them areas of strengths and areas to improve within their game, how to prepare before, during and after competition with the different pressures and demands that come with that.

“Thank you to the University of Birmingham for hosting us and the numerous volunteers who came from local clubs and the Worcester Centre of Excellence to help make everything run so smoothly.”
