Rugby Girls Help County Side To Runners-Up Spot

Wednesday October 16 2013

NINE girls from a Barnsley rugby club were part of a 25-strong Yorkshire squad that were runners-up in the RFU County Rugby Festival.

The girls, from Barnsley Ladies Under 18s, were selected to play in the county team at the Vale of Lune Rugby Club, Lancaster, on October 6.

The girls helped Yorkshire to start off with a 10-0 win against Northumbria, following this up with a 12-0 win against a combined Cumbria/Durham side.

Ellie Frow, who was given the honour of being appointed captain, got on the score sheet with a try and Rebecca Bennett kicked a conversion.

In their third match the ladies lost to eventual tournament winners Lancashire 29-0 but bounced back in the final match against Cheshire with a 29-0 victory with Rebecca Bennett going over for a try and also kicking 2 conversions.

Barnsley Ladies U18s have been shortlisted in the Sports Team of the Year category at this year's Proud of Barnsley awards.
