Our county U17s meet England star

While everyone else was floundering around in the mud last night, our county U17 girls were having a training session with a difference - the warm and dry where they met and listened to Margaret Alphonsi - Saracens and England's No7*.

Margaret is currently studying for her Masters in Sports Psychology, and is also Rugby Development Officer for Saracens (Amateur )RFC, as well as fitting in training on 5 days each week.

She was there to talk about the importance of goal setting and sports psychology, showing the county squad how they could raise their game as individuals and as a team.

(*Of course that didn't stop one of our county girls floundering around in the mud anyway, having failed to jump over a big, bright yellow tackle bag prior to going to the session. I won't say who it was, but those who were there will know...)
