FORMER Cullompton player Izzy Noel-Smith will represent Great Britain at the World University Championships next month.

The Bath University student has been selected in the women's sevens team for the event in Brive, France, from July 11 until 13.

Noel-Smith not only played for the full England side last season but also represented her country in the first two IRB Women's Challenge Cup tournaments.

After reaching the final in Dubai, the flanker helped England win the second event in Hong Kong.

Great Britain are taking on nine other countries at the championships next month, including defending champions Spain.

Crediton's Sam Hill started for England as they lost 27-12 to Ireland in the IRB Junior World Championships.

Tries from Chris Walker and Henry Slade were not enough for England and Ireland will now face France at Newlands Stadium for a tilt at fifth spot in the competition.

Hill, who started in the centre, and his teammates will now face Australia in the seventh-placed play-off.
