London 2NE: Beccles 24, Hampstead 19

15:04 16 April 2012

Already relegated Beccles won their final game of the season in London 2NE to ensure they climbed off the bottom of the table.

The Bulls showed their intention from the start with fast ball from the half backs combination of Sale and Harmer. Quick into the breakdown, Hinsley and Stark secured a good platform for Izuzquiza to score in the corner.

Hampstead replied with a converted try before Wade scored a penalty for the hosts. Hampstead scored another converted try but Beccles hit back with skipper Lake scoring a converted try from a driving maul and Wade added a penalty to make it 18-14 at the break.

Wade increased the Beccles lead with a penalty before Hampstead scored again.

Spectacular runs from Hall and Duruk crashed through the backline, allowing forwards Rix and Wilson to trundle through Hampstead’s scrambled line. Yet another penalty was conceded by Hampstead and Wade finished off a good kicking performance by adding the penalty.

Roy Hodgson has quit after England were knocked out of Euro 2016 after losing 2-1 to Iceland in their round-of-16 match in Nice.

Hodgson confirmed his assistant managers Ray Lewington and Gary Neville will also leave their roles.

Wayne Rooney put England in front with an early penalty after Raheem Sterling was fouled, only for Ragnar Sigurdsson to equalise almost immediately.

Kolbeinn Sigthorsson gave Iceland - a nation of 330,000 people - the lead with a shot Joe Hart should have saved.

England, devoid of attacking ideas, rarely threatened and Iceland will face hosts France in the quarter-finals.
