"About Herts" girls' rugby special

The latest edition of "About Herts" - the quarterly county rugby newsletter - features a massive five page section devoted to the success of girls' and women's rugby in the county. Much of it has appeared on this blog, but there are previously unpublished match reports from the first round of county games, plus other articles about the success of the game in the county.

All clubs will have been sent copies, but an PDF can be downloaded from here.

Herts double against Kent

Hertfordshire beat Kent today 12-7.(HT 12-7)Try scorers: Ellena Perry & Syd Gregson. Conv: Zoe Harrison

Ellena's try came from a rucking and mauling session and followed big yards made by Vicci with Bryony in support. Syd's try was a brilliant catch and run down the line from Kent kick-off, evading and handing off several to score under the post.

However, that performance pales beside the U18s who destroyed Kent 60-0, including ten unanswered tries - four from Georgia Peedle, four from Lotte Clapp, one from Olivia Stembridge and one more (plus five conversions) from Claire Shutler.

Joint Girls Training Afternoon, Royston, 12th December

Royston will be entertaining all non-county girl players on Sunday afternoon. There will also be a new squad from Newmarket visiting for their first experience of competitive rugby - so there is a guarantee of a game of rugby for everyone that attends!

If you aim to arrive around midday Royston will organize everyone into teams and aim to start playing by 1.00.
The Club will also be running a BBQ with free hot dogs for players – spectators will have to buy their own!

As Royston have very little changing room for females, they recommend that girls come dressed for rugby with warm tracksuits etc.

Clubs are asked to notify Jamie Johnson at Royston by Friday of anticipated numbers of players.
