Crompton set for World Cup qualifying

Bristol Bears winger Grace Crompton will feature for England Women Sevens in their Rugby Europe World Cup qualifying tournament at National Rugby Stadium Arcul de Triumf, in Bucharest (16-17 July).

 


 

Crompton has already been called up to represent Team England at this summer's Commonwealth Rugby Sevens in Birmingham.

Drawn in Pool B, England take on hosts Romania, Italy and Belgium with all matches streamed on RugbyEurope.tv.
 
The tournament is made up of three pools of four teams. The top eight teams will progress from the pools and be reseeded for the quarter-finals where the winners of each will qualify for the Rugby World Cup Sevens which takes place in South Africa in September.
 
Abbie Brown captains the side which is made up of players who have represented England Sevens on the 2022 World Series and Rugby Europe tournaments.
 
Rodwell said: “As a group we are really looking forward to getting back on the pitch with the aim to qualify for this year’s World Cup in Cape Town.
 
“We’ve had an intensive training block since we returned from the Rugby Europe tournaments and want to continue the progress made there.
 
“This is separate from the Commonwealth Games and a big opportunity to be involved in another major tournament in what is a really exciting year for sevens.”
