Swallow Hill girls’ rugby is ‘direct and fearless’

The year 8 girls from Swallow Hill Community College really enjoyed their first taste of competitive rugby at Farnley Academy, writes Pat Doherty.

Although they lost both games, the organiser from Leeds Rhinos commented that their style of play would suit the full contact version of the game better with their direct and fearless running.

Despite the scores the games were closer than the scorelines suggest and the girls can take many positives from the games.

Add into the mix that only one girl had ever played rugby before you can see they’re not too far off – especially for beginners.

Rozheen Sardar was chosen as player of the tournament – she made some very telling runs with the ball and also bagged two tries.

The girls voted Emma Kouadjo as players` Player of the Tournament too. Special mention goes to Cherry-Leigh Lock for a great all-round display.
