Wales have retained their European Championship title and qualified for the 2015 Netball World Cup.

This year's European Championships doubled up as a regional qualifier, with the Republic of Ireland replacing England - who are already guaranteed a place at the World Cup with their top four world ranking.

Wales, who completed a clean sweep of victories across the weekend, will now join England in Sydney next year and also Scotland, who nicked the second qualifying place after Northern Ireland failed to beat Wales by the two goals required.
