Team Manager Stuart Wardle commented: ‘What a great venue. TAFI provided fantastic hospitality, great venues and great fishing to make this a really fantastic competition. AT Team England use the 5 Nations as a development opportunity for developing International anglers and the Team worked hard together to produce a very credible performance finishing only 2 placing points off a podium place. The icing on the cake was Individual Gold for Ben Bangham of Team England, with only 7 placing points it illustrates a very consistent performance from Ben and a credit that is shared amongst all the team and brings some reward back to England.’
‘A BIG thank you goes to the Trout Anglers Federation of Ireland (TAFI) for the organisation, the controllers, the clubs and venues and hosts, and also to the Mills Inn for looking after us all so well.’
