Letchworth girls at centre of county triumph

Eight of our girls took the long drive to the middle of Oxfordshire (or "no-where" as someone in the back seat of may car described it) on Sunday, and all played their part in a massive triumph for the county.

At U14 level Hayley and Laura played hard on their county debuts as Herts won all three games against Oxfordshire (22-0), Essex (5-0) and Middlesex (15-0). Laura actually played for three counties on the day - "guesting" for Oxfordshire and Essex before pulling on the light green for the first time.

The u17s had two games - against Oxfordshire (won 40+-nil) and Essex (won 15-0). Six of our seven U17 squad members took part - only Steph's hand injury keeping her away.

  • Laura was - I think - on the field throughout, proping superbly against a fearsome looking Essex front row;
  • Katie played one half against each side - coping well with some "gamesmanship" (ie. blatant cheating!) from the Essex scrum-half who at times was sneeking round the back of the referee and ending up nearer the Herts front row than Katie was!
  • Rosie and Natalie put in some good runs down the flanks;
  • Nim dumped opposition players into the crowd as per usual; and
  • Hayley - held back from playing against Oxfordshire - made up for it with a great performance in the second game, including a typical crash-through-everyone try from about 10m out, and might have had another one had she not been listening to the siren call of a team-mate calling for a pass ... which she failed to catch!

Both Herts teams looked scarily good - how good we will see on 3rd December.

  2. Oh sorry - I'm sure someone said you didn't!

    My mistake!!
