Selection for the girls under 18, under 15 and under 13 rugby squads for Lancashire took place on Sunday 21st September at Eccles rugby club.
Emma Wall and Polly Bell, both Year 11, represented the U15′s last season. This season they have secured themselves a place in the U18 squad (no small feat considering this is their first season in this age group). Both girls, who play in the 2nd row, will now go on to represent Lancashire.
Willow bell, Year 8, younger sister of Polly, who technically should be representing the U13′s, was selected to play for the U15′s team, as was Cerys Ellis, Year 10, who endured the trials with a fractured nose!
Mr. Williams is tremendously proud of how the girls have performed and will be following their progress with interest. Remember the next rugby world cup could see Polly and Emma contesting for places at a national level!!
Girls rugby training takes place at Unity College every Thursday after school from 3.10 – 4.30pm. Everyone is welcome to attend.
