“This has been a lengthy but rewarding process,” commented High-Performance Director, Ben Powell, “and by the time we arrive at tap off for ETC22 on August 1st, it will have been over 1,400 days since the last European Championships.
“We have assembled excellent squads through a process that may be the most competitive to date for England Touch. We are really looking forward to the opportunity to compete at ETC22 and feel all of our squads have a great chance to challenge for top honours.
“I would like to thank everyone who has helped us get to this point – the High-Performance Panel, our excellent coaching team, our medical team, strength, and conditioning, and most importantly our dedicated and talented athletes.”
We congratulate them all and will cheer them on through the competition!
