England Lacrosse has a bright future if the results of the Home Internationals 2016 are to be an indicator. England had 2 senior and 2 junior teams in action at the weekend, each team went undefeated in their respective pools.

“England’s Home International results prove that the talent pathway in place for lacrosse is supplying the national teams with a fantastic depth of players. Players are competing for positions in each squad, pushing each other to improve. England Lacrosse will only get stronger.” Jane Powell, Performance Director English Lacrosse.
