U13 Girls Festival Success

Sunday 19th October saw Round 1 of the RFU Midlands East U13 Girls league held at Ashfield RUFC.

With excellent travelling support from parents of all the teams the players demonstrated their continuing rate of development in U13 rugby with some great spells of attacking and defensive rugby.

All players left Ashfield with the heads held high following numerous matches against the opposition.  Players from all teams represented themselves extremely well and were a credit to Girls rugby.

Mansfield RFC & NLD U13 Head coach Peter Haskell said he was ‘delighted with the skills and commitment shown in the matches by all the players’.  Now all the U13 Girls look forward to the next RFU round on the 2nd November which will take place at Melbourne RFC in order to continue their rate of development and progress.
