Posted on

England lost 19-7 to Samoa in their opening group game before going on to beat Canada 26-10 and Bahamas 72-0 during the first day. On day 2 they beat a spirited Sri Lanka side 32-5 and then Fiji 26-19 in a thrilling game to set up the Gold medal match with Samoa. Unfortunately despite a determined comeback after having one player yellow carded in the first few minutes and going 10-0 down at half time they ran out of time in the 2nd half and were beaten 10-5 despite a strong finish. Fergus was an inspirational captain and led from by example.
