15 Rugby Girls County Runners-up:
The Under 15’s started where they left off from the area festival, cruising through their respective group by beating South Dartmoor, Ivybridge, Pilton and Holsworthy to meet Exmouth in the semi final. They dispatched of Exmouth by three tries to one, leaving them a tough game against well renowned Kingsbridge Community College in the final. Seeing as their whole squad represent the County, the girls did extremely well but fell short and ended up runners up. Over the two days, the girls had a record of played 12, won 11 and lost 1. Not a bad record, considering the make up of the team and that only a handful play for external clubs. Unfortunately, the two finalists do not progress to a regional and national final, as done in the past and cannot follow in the 2013 team’s footsteps of potentially playing at Twickenham. The RFU coaches told Mr Pearce on the day that this was down to ‘funding’ from the RFU. This will be looked into.
Congratulations to the squad: Lauren Elliot ©, Lenni Bashford, Fay Beer, Rachel Champion, Nikita Watkins, Marli Watkins, Rowan Greaves, Jasmine Collins-Board, Becca Nisbet, Rhiannon Seaton, Chloe Harris, Daisy Norris, Ellie Bradner, Summer Tooze, Chloe Elliott, Natasha Barley.
