Hertfordshire Rugby Festival

Tuesday 21 March 2017

The Abbot’s Hill U13 Rugby team went to the Hertfordshire Rugby Festival on Friday 17 March. The girls had the support of England International player, Joe Launchbury. He sent a good luck message to the girls from the England camp which gave the team extra inspiration!

It was a great day as the team went undefeated. The first game ended in an exciting draw vs Queens 4-4. The girls then won three straight games to finish joint top of the group, beating Townsend 3-2, then Thomas Allyne 3-2 and finally vs Longdean 3-1.

Unfortunately the Abbot’s Hill team came second on try difference. However, in our playoff game the girls beat Herts and Essex School 3-1 to finish in third place overall. Claudia was voted MVP after some great tackling and scoring 9 tries. Isabel racked up 4 tries, Zoe gained two more and Samantha scored one try. The squad also included Georgia, Leyla, Millie, Elizabeth, Grace, Connie and Catherine.

Well done girls!
