Over 20 girls from Samworth Academy, Brunts Academy and Toothill Academy took part in a rugby tournament on Wednesday 21st March. Several of the players are also members of the Mansfield Rugby Club. All the girls involved played exceptionally well, particularly Toothill who have only had a few weeks experience. The girls played a mixture of touch and grab rugby; there was good teamwork and communication, with lots of tries scored by both teams. Overall, it was a great festival and good experience, and hopefully it will encourage more girls into rugby.
