President's XV: And the other winners were...

The RFU have published details of all of the winners of the President's XV awards.

There are some interesting awards out there, not least the "Girl Power" award where we knew that Welwyn had been runners-up. The winner, however, was Cockermouth. Not normally a club name that trips off the tongue when thinking of the senior or junior game, but clearly they have been busy as the RFU praises them for "the staggering development of women’s and girls rugby" at the club. In fact this otherwise quiet Cumbrian town is obviously a hotbed of hard work as they also won the award for attracting volunteers. If the tour to the North East goes ahead it may be worth popping over the Pennines to for the day to visit such a go-ahead club.

The other Girl Power runner up was from the same area - but the rather more familiar name of Darlington Mowden Park.

Our own award was, in contrast, a southern affair as we pipped Windsor and Northolt rugby clubs to the modernisation prize.

On the girls' rugby circuit Peterborough may be worth a visit as well - runners-up in the "best facilities" award - but other than that the other club winners do not (I think) have girls' teams. A complete list of all winners can be found here.

Two awards were not made (those for "Social Inclusion" and "Fundraising Event") and several have incomplete lists of runners-up - whether due to a lack of entries or quality of entries it does not say. I would venture to suggest that the lack of an award in the former of the two categories should give the game some pause for thought.
