Hertford Girls win the day

On Sunday, Letchworth girls played Hertford girls in an entertaining U15s match at Legends Lane. The game was notable for the open running rugby and determination to win shown by both sides in a good-natured contest.

Although Letchworth took an early lead, they were soon pegged back by Hertford as the sides exchanged scores in the first quarter of the match. Moving into the second quarter, Hertford steadily built themselves a lead which, by the interval, had reached 25-15. The second half followed a similar pattern and even though Letchworth were continuing to press - and score - right through to the end, Hertford deservedly ran out winners by 50-30.

    Does the IRB ruling on leggings being banned apply to the girls game?
    We get reminded weekly by the refs' society that these are not to be tolerated.

    Have a look at

  2. Re : RugbyRefs forum on leggings.
    I have no intention of pursuing a debate on this subject in an area about a junior girls match! Suffice to say that reading the forum left me in no doubt that the issue was far from resolved. Furthermore, looking at the IRB rules and regulations, I found no evidence to support a view that leggings are banned. Quite the reverse, in fact.
    Anyway, the referee of the match - the sole judge of fact - allowed both teams to have some players in leggings. And good for him, say I.
