GREAT Britain won the Women’s Four Nations Tournament in Sheffield on Saturday night as

They lost out 16-15 to the Faroe Islands in their final match, but they lift the trophy on goal difference. Great Britain looked superb throughout the Tournament, which was watched by more than 1,000 people over the three days - including civic dignitaries, overseas visitors and national media.

The team have only been together for little more than two years after a series of talent searches, but are already proving a handful for some well established international opposition. They beat Turkey Under- 21s 22-13 in their opening match at the English Institute of Sport in Sheffield, and then went on to beat a tough Latvian side 25-20 on Friday night. “It was a really good result,” said head coach Jesper Holmris. “I’m very happy with how the girls have performed. They get better with every match and they should be proud of themselves for what they have achieved in Sheffield.”
