England won the 2012 Dublin European WOMEN Team Championships. These are the new champions: Sally Brock, Fiona Brown, Heather Dhondy, Nevena Senior, Nicola Smith (Nicola, not Nicole), Susan Stockdale. Jeremy Dhondy and David Burn were respectively non playing captain and coach. Neapolitan Club congratulates the strongest team upon the victory: they conducted almost since the start. The English Women already posed their cornerstone in the first match, beating 16-14 the great French team, title holder and World Champions, placed second: Benedicte Cronier, Catherine D’Ovidio, Danielle Gaviard, Joanna Neve, Vanessa Reess, Sylvie Willard. After this event, Horace Nelson from Trafalgar Square turned round to watch them by his spyglass.

Third comes Turkey, confirming to be a great squad too: Asli Acar,Vera Adut, Belis Atalay, Berrak Erkan, Ozlem Oymen, Dilek Yavas. Fourth are The Netherlands; fifth is Poland, sixth comes Israel. These six are the teams who are elected to face The Usa, China, and others in the 2013 Bali Venice Cup.

A unpleasant outcome is the ninth place of Italy. Unpleasant for Italians, of course, but by no means unexpected after what seen already in the first three days: a disaster, and, what’s more, a disaster against the main rivals: 8-22 Netherlands; 8-22 England; a dreadful 2-25 against France and 6-24 against Turkey. It’s difficult to say what happened, but there aren’t doubts that the harmony and confidence didn’t lodge in our Team.

The final roster:
1) England 351
2) France 342
3) Turkey 333.5
4) Netherlands 333
5) Poland 323.5
6) Israel 317.5
7) Sweden 314
8 ) Austria 305
9) Italy 298
10) Norway 288
11) Scotland 286
12) Belgium 285
13) Denmark 282
14) Germany 263.5
15) Greece 250
16) Bulgaria 238.5
17) Estonia 214.5
18) Spain 199
19) Ireland 190
