IRB Women's World Cup Plate Champions England today (Sunday) added the European 7s crown to their bulging silverware cabinet, beating Spain 20-12 in the final in Hanover, Germany.

England's last game was a thrilling contest with the Red Roses down to five players at one point during the 20-minute match. And after going 10-12 down in the second-half they came back out firing with Saracens' Claire Allan and Wasps' Heather Fisher touching down for two vital tries.

For Allan it was her second try in the final after she opened England's account closely followed by Amber Penrith.

England booked their place in the final after a dominant 44-0 victory over host side Germany, which saw them score eight tries, with Rachael Burford and Abi Chamberlain also adding conversions.

On route to the knock-out stages England touched down for 15 tries and conceded just one try when they took on France, Spain, Portugal and Sweden in the pool games.

England Head Coach Gary Street said: "The squad showed incredible determination today to come back from being two players down. The guts, courage and honour these players have is incredible especially after a long training period. We are delighted to have won the European 7s and to do so in such style is very impressive."

England 7s are coached by former England international Susie Appleby and Barry Maddocks, RFUW Club and Coach Officer.
