Run an Inner Warrior Camp at YOUR Club!

June 21st, 2017 by

Since the successful launch in January and the recent campaign in May. The work to attract more women to contact rugby has certainly proved to be a success!

*   Over 2500 Women & Girls took part across approx. 150 camps

*   Over 1000 new players attended

*   See snapshot of some of the successes here – Inner Warrior Round Up May 2017

And so, to build on this we are now running another Inner Warrior Camp campaign from Fri 18 Aug to Sun 3 Sep.  This is also during the Womens World Cup so a great time to recruit new players to your team!

What’s in it for your club?

Your Inner Warrior Camp will receive:

*   Support from local England Rugby staff in the build-up and during your event.

*   National promotion through England Rugby’s website including sign up options for new people.

*   Links to a national campaign across England Rugby channels and press that will be re-launched just ahead of all events.

*   Access to the England Rugby Brand Centre to design your club poster/flyer/social media banner and use the event guide with England Rugby imagery and phrases.

*   There will be opportunities in each area for certain events to be supported with further resources once the applications are in.

What do I have to do to register?

*   Simply click HERE to register your event This link will go live this Friday 23rd June. This will take less than 5mins if you know the date and time of your event

*   You MUST apply by Fri 14  Jul

What does the club do next?

*   Start planning how you are going to run and promote your Inner Warrior Camp, ensuring the whole club buys into this.  After all, this could result in more members!

*   As mentioned above, this coincides with the Women’s Rugby World Cup. So think of opportunities around fixtures etc.

*   Think of what will encourage local non-rugby women / girls to come down and have a go – not necessarily always rugby related!!

*   Once your event has been accepted as an Inner Warrior Event, get it on social media and ensure you share it regularly with as many local groups as possible

We look forward to receiving your application and welcoming lots of new women and girls into the Rugby Family!

NLD Ladies v Yorkshire Match Report

May 8th, 2017 by

NLD Ladies Match Report

Yorkshire v NLD Sunday 30.4.17

Definition of Teamwork: “the combined efforts or actions of a group of individuals working together to achieve a common purpose or goal”.

NLD Ladies are playing in the RFU National Cup Competition for the first time following last season unbeaten in the Shield Competition. Our NLD Ladies travelled to Yorkshire to play their first round in the Cup which was always going to be a challenge knowing Yorkshire’s strength & depth.

Both teams played from start to finish with determination and ferocity with quick ball, hard play and dogged defending. Although under pressure for much of the match from the more experienced Yorkshire side, who were running well-rehearsed lines through their 10 and 12 and managing to create overlaps on both wings seemingly at will, NLD put up a good fight with the first 20 minutes seeing several turnover ball and penalties in our favour. Scrums were evenly matched throughout the match with no side gaining the upper hand but Yorkshire were able to keep the scoreboard ticking over, aided by some inspired spot kicking, and finished the first half with a comfortable lead. The second half saw much the same with Yorkshire putting NLD under pressure in all areas of the pitch and things were made harder for NLD when 2 infringements resulted in back to back yellow cards and NLD having to play the last 20 minutes with 14 players.

Even though the NLD Ladies were “outplayed” by their Yorkshire counterparts there are many positives they can rightfully take from this match. Their teamwork throughout was outstanding. They always supported each other and competed to the final whistle. At no time did their heads drop or their intensity in contact flag. For a team that has little experience playing at this level they competed with confidence and gave a good account of themselves both on and off the pitch. They have given themselves a solid foundation on which to build.

NLD Ladies have home games on the next 2 Sundays, 7th and 14th May, at Southwell RFC, against Staffordshire and North Midlands respectively. KO 3pm. All visitors and supporters welcome.
