Ellie makes her mark!

Both Letchworth U18 and U15 squads travelled to Hertford RFC today with the U18s playing against the hosts and the U15s combining with them to play against OA Saints and Saracens.

The U18s dominated their match against a novice Hertford team from the very first second when Jess fielded the kick off and immediately ran in a try. More tries followed soon after but, to their credit, the Hertford girls stuck to the task throughout and provided sterner opposition as the game progressed. Highlights of the game from a Letchworth perspective were a brace of tries for Georgie and a stunning 70 metre break-away try by Ellie in the closing seconds.

Result : Hertford 0 Letchworth 68
Letchworth scorers :
Tries : Hayley (3), Nikki (3), Georgie (2), Mel (2), Ellie, Jess
Conversions : Nikki (4)

Three Letchworth U15s - Laura, Jess and Ellah - joined with Hertford to play 2 matches in a triangular tournament with Saracens and OA Saints. The first game against OAs started as a close affair with the sides exchanging tries until Hertford/Letchworth managed to pull out a 4 try lead going into the final minutes. However, OAs came back strongly and managed to halve the deficit by the final whistle. The second game against Saracens was comfortably won by the visitors. The Letchworth girls all aquitted themselves well - particularly so as this was the first match at U15s for Ellah and the first match of any sort for Jess. Well done, girls!

Results :

Hertford/Letchworth 30 v OA Saints 20

Hertford/Letchworth 0 v Saracens 35

Many thanks to Hertford RFC for an excellent days rugby.

  1. Well done girls. Sorry to miss the games - prior engagement picking up a very muddy scout from a camp in Watford in the morning (Green Beret - Hayey and Carla will remember such events!). Good to see that Hertford U18s are up and running again after losing all their players a year or so ago.
