Your News England Deaf beat Wales

ENGLAND Deaf ended an eight year wait for a win over Wales with a 21-8 victory at Fylde RFC this afternoon.

A try from wing Adam Faulkner of Wharfedale ten minutes from time sealed Englands victory, only their second against Wales since they began playing Deaf Internationals in 2003 and their first since 2004.

Its a tribute to the hard work that the coaches have put in, said Tony Stoyles, England Deafs director of rugby.

Our game plan has changed over the last two years, we had five new caps in the side today and each of them added something to the side and they are players that we will be keen to use again in the future.

The scores were level 5-5 at half-time with wing Liam Roads of Risborough crossing for Englands unconverted try.

Debutant scrum-half Graham Sage of Oxford Harlequins kicked three second half penalties to nudge England ahead and he also converted Faulkners try, a fine run down the wing from close to half way.
