Letchworth girls make a mark in inter-county sevens and at region

Well done to Nim, Rosie Randfield, Chloe, Nichola, and Jess for their performances in the inter-county sevens tournament hosted by Surrey RFU this afternoon.

All ended up on winning teams. In the U17s Nim captained the county to a 15-5 win over Surrey (Rosie scoring what was to prove a crucial try). The girls from Ampthill then played as "Bedfordshire" and also beat Surrey, this time 19-15.

The decider ended 0-0 (finishing early due to an injury... seem to recall that happening before between Letchworth and Ampthill!) and - as it was three tries each (thanks to Rosie) Herts were declared the winners because they had conceeded fewer tries.

In the U14s Hertfordshire came second to Surrey - but this was thanks to rather a lot of Surrey's tries being scored by Jess who played for the home team as a guest!

So a triumph all round, making team selection for the Sevens even more difficult. For the second week running we were even asked how much Sevens we played by the opposing coach "as clearly you play a lot"!

Meanwhile at the other end of the country (well, Leicestershire anyway) Carla, Hayley, and Natalie were defending the honour of the East Region. At U17 level the East almost made up for their defeat to East Mids at Harpenden a few weeks ago, only going down 5-0 but made up for them with a good 15-10 victory over Yorkshire.

However, it was the U14s who took all the headlines. After running up over 50 points without reply against Thames Valley at Harpenden, the East girls almost did it again, with Natalie scoring a try in a walloping 49-0 win over East Midlands. Its looking good for the festival at the end of the month!
