NLD Girls Round Robin Success
This season a new Round Robin Format was introduced into the U13 Girls game. The philosophy of the format was to follow the Core Values of Rugby Union, with teams understanding that all teams are taking part to grow and develop their team, and their individual players. By offering a local playing opportunity that is part of a meaningful competition.
This event was the culmination of 5 Round Robin festivals throughout the season which included Mansfield, Melbourne, Ashfield/Chesterfield, Newark and Long Eaton each hosting an event. Small sided, fun games for all abilities being the key to each festival.
Lutterworth RFC was the venue for the U15 & U18 Area Cup Finals and alongside this the U13 were involved in the final Round Robin festival of the season, before then having the opportunity to watch the other matches being played.
The U13 teams involved on the day were Mansfield, Newark, Long Eaton & Lutterworth. Unfortunately, Ashfield & Melbourne were unable to attend but have been involved throughout.
