Past and present University of Bath students help England women to eighth-placed finish at 2022 Rugby World Cup Sevens

12 September 2022

An England women’s squad featuring University of Bath student Grace Crompton and graduate Amy Wilson Hardy had to settle for an eighth-placed finish at the Rugby World Cup 7s tournament in South Africa. 

Both players were on the scoresheet during Friday’s 29-5 win over Spain, which was preceded by a period of silence following the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

A tough 21-0 defeat to Australia in the Championship Quarter-final sent England into the fifth-eighth placed play-off matches on Sunday where they were beaten 22-7 by Canada and 26-10 by Ireland.

Crompton studies Sports Management and Coaching at the University of Bath, where is supported by the Team Bath Dual Career programme, while Wilson Hardy is an Integrated Mechanical and Electrical Engineering alumna.
