Your News North U18 Girls on England trail

THE North Under 18 Women’s RU team will be hoping for better fortunes than their senior counterparts last weekend in the England Divisional trials when they take on the Midlands at Longton RUFC on Sunday.

The Senior Women were also at Longton last weekend and were edged out 20-19 by the Midlands despite scoring three tries through Lucy Meadley (2) and Ruth Laybourn and a brace of penalties from Rachel Thomas.

The North’s Talent Development Officer for the Rugby Football Union for Women, however, is in optimistic mood. He said: “The girls had a really good training session last weekend with coaches Mark Harper and Adam Faulkner and are really keen to start the programme with a good win.

“It will be a big challenge for many of the girls next weekend, but I am confident they will play well.”

One player they will be looking to for a standout performance is Keswick’s Cumbria lock-forward Abbie Scott, who is in the England U20 squad this season
