Glorious Gloucester : Part 2!

News is filtering through that the U15s Sunday tournament was just as well organised and just as hotly contested as the U18s had been on Saturday....

Letchworth girls combined with Berry Hill for this event to form the 'Amazon Barbarians'. As both teams are relatively young and inexperienced, this was always going to be a difficult tournament for them but the reports reaching me emphasize the spirit with which the girls took on opponents far bigger and more experienced than themselves. Jade, in particular, seemed to relish bringing even the biggest of opponents down to earth with a bump and everyone, as Wonky put it, 'got stuck in' and kept going all day. The team was getting better game by game and was only narrowly defeated by Old Northamptonians in the Plate semi-final by 14-20.

After a hard days rugby, Amazon Barbarians finished in 8th place with Sydney their top scorer in the tournament. The girls were still smiling at the end and were determined to do better in the next tournament! The enthusiasm and effort they put in certainly suggests that much more successful tournaments await them in the future ...
