Newscast Media HOUSTON, Texas—The International Rugby Board and USA Rugby awarded Houston a multi-year deal to host the International Rugby Women’s Sevens World Series featuring 12 international women’s teams competing at BBVA Compass Stadium in downtown Houston, on February 1 and 2, 2013.

England claimed the second IRB Women’s Sevens World Series title in Houston on February 2, following a dominant display in the final over hosts USA. England ran out 29-12 winners after an excellent weekend, where they had to beat the champions from Dubai, New Zealand, twice on the way to lifting the title. Jo Watmore scored a hat-trick in the final, in a display of real power and pace, and England, led strongly by captain Alice Richardson and with Heather Fisher in sublime form, fully deserved their title.
