Red roses one step nearer

The TDG may not have wanted them, but maybe England U20s will!

News has come through that Hayley and Sasha - who failed to make the final TDG trial this summer - have been selected for the final England U20 trial, which will take place on 28th September (same day as the county tournament in Sussex).

This is an incredible achievement even if the girls don't get any further. Both of them were amongst the youngest of the trial group, and were up against women who have played adult rugby for up to two years so to make it through to the final fifty at their first attempt is pretty impressive. 

I am hugely proud of both of them, though maybe a bit more for the one who learnt all her rugby at this club (and for the first year with me as the coach as well!). Letchworth haven't produced that many England internationals over the years (at any level) so maybe the club should start finding a bit of wall space for some new framed shirts!

PS - You know I suggested that a certain "former player" might be on the phone to us if her new team didn't have a game one weekend? Guess what! 

It'll be good to see her (and Hayley, who is back from Liverpool. Apparently she heard the above news on the coach and disturbed the slumbers of her fellow passengers a bit) but it is confirmed that her games with us will be few as Suffolk Sabres sound like going ahead - they have entered the Not The RFUW National 10s, for example.

In fact the latter is now really the Anglo-Welsh 10s as two or three more Welsh sides are now in the tournament. So you'll all be playing for your country next spring!
