On Wednesday 27th November the 6th form girls’ rugby team participated in a 7’s rugby tournament at Cardiff Arms Park. The girls played tremendously well with one win, one draw and one loss and some amazing tries scored by Lauren and Storm.
Not only did the team get the opportunity to play on the Cardiff Blues home ground, they also had a unique tour of the Millennium Stadium where they got to go pitch side and in the players’ lounge. The team received a talk from the WRU head of women’s rugby about pathways into women’s rugby and the importance of an athlete’s nutrition and training.
It was a fantastic day where the girls represented their school and received a lot of great feedback about their rugby skills and great positive attitudes. Members of the team are now signing up for external rugby clubs and pursing their passion for the game.
A big thank you to the WRU for inviting us and to the parents who came along to support the team.
Congratulations to the girls! – you had a very proud PE teacher and sport coaches on the side lines!
5×60 Girls Rugby is every Tuesday lunchtime and Friday afterschool!
