ENGLAND Under-23 Men clinched third place in the Six Nations Tournament after beating India 3-0 in their final match in Breda, The Netherlands, on Saturday.

Two goals from Ed Horler and one from Sam Hatherley were enough for England – who drew with India in their previous Pool match on Friday – to take victory this time.

Horler struck first in the seventh minute and doubled their lead on 47 minutes, while Hatherley made sure of the win with a strike two minutes from time.

Head Coach Jon Bleby said: “Overall this was a really good performance where we successfully applied some of the lessons we learned against India in the previous match.

“India put in a very good performance, but we were unfaltering and I was particularly pleased with the improvements to our circle attack play and our thoroughness across the pitch.

“The tournament has been a great learning experience and we go home looking forward to working hard to improving further.”

The team are next in action against Germany in August.
