Former student Abbie Brown was selected as England Women’s 7’s Captain for the HSBC World Series, where they finished fourth overall in the first round in Dubai this weekend.
They started day one with a win over Fiji but then lost subsequent games in day two, with a semi final loss to World Champions Australia, then a narrow 17-14 loss to Russia in the Bronze Final.
Abbie was selected as Captain for the squad for the series, highlighting her status as a player more than ever. She is part of the Rugby Football Union’s fully-professional set up.
She was even selected by sponsors as one of the top seven players in the competition, an outstanding effort! We wish her all the very best for the remainder of the series, with Sydney next in February.
