A weekend of medals... and frustration

It been a weekend to remember for a couple of our regional girls, but a weekend to forget for two more as a result of the Regional Championships at Rugby School.

On Sunday the U14s, featuring Nikki (No. 20 in the ruck, below left) and Emily, finished runner-up in their championship. They stormed through their group, scoring 110 points in three games against Thames Valley, South West (S), and North East without conceeding a point, then beat West Midlands 5-0 in the semi final.

But in the the final they found themselves up against the South - comfortably the team of the tournament - and lost out 20-0.

Still it was a terrific performance, and another step up for the regional team which finished fourth last year.

Meanwhile 150 miles away our sole U17 representative - Hayley - was at a scout camp with Carla and Nichola. In their role as Explorer Scouts they were supposedly "looking after" the younger members of the Ashwell troop, but still managed to find time for a bouncy castle. This innocent activity became something more than that when Carla decided to rugby tackle Hayley, the result being a severely sprained finger... and a forced withdrawal from Monday's U17 championships. It is not reported what words were exchanged between Hayley and Carla, but it can be safely assumed that Rachel would not have been impressed by any of them.
