“This group of ladies are going from strength to strength not only at 7's but in their 15's games as well. They are committed and eager to learn.”
Ben Mousley (women's coach)
On the 20th April 2018, 24 players and 2 coaches will board a plane at Heathrow airport and set off for Sydney, Australia.
During the ten day stay England Deaf men and women will both compete in the 1st ever world Deaf 7's championship, that features team from 11 nations across the world.
The women's squad completed their final training session under the lead of their coach Ben Mousley and the men squad under the lead of EDRU head coach Sean Fletcher. Both men are confident that they have prepared to the best of the squads ability and that they will both be a force to be reckoned with in Australia.
We wish both squads luck in the quest to become the best in the world Deaf stage.
