Wales lose semi-pro crown
Wales relinquished their semi-professional Home Nations crown to England after losing their second match in the three match tournament.

Tomi Morgan's side suffered a 0-2 defeat against the Republic of Ireland at Haverfordwest on Saturday.

Two first half goals by Ireland's livewire striker Jamie Nolan proved the difference between the two sides.

England's 1-1 draw against Scotland earlier in the day was enough to hand them the title.

The English had enjoyed a 4-0 win over Ireland and a 2-0 win over Wales earlier in the week.

Wales' only win came in their opening match against Scotland.
