Wales win Lady Milne; England 2nd, EBU 4th.

Wales have won the Lady Milne Trophy - the match between the women's teams of the home nations - by a small margin, with England second and Scotland third. The event took place from 17th to 19th April in Birmingham.

Although Wales only won two of their five matches they picked up enough VPs to claim the trophy. Wales finished on 56.92, with England scoring 54.71 and Scotland 53.72.

As hosts England were permitted to enter two teams, and the EBU team finished fourth. Like both England and Scotland - and indeed Northern Ireland who finished fifth - the EBU team won three of their five matches. It was the margins of victory (or defeat) which decided the final placings.

The teams were:
