Stanford host girls tournament
8:00pm Thursday 31st October 2013 in Sport
RUGBY: THERE was plenty of rugby action when the RFU and Stanford Rugby Club hosted a tournament for secondary school girls.
It was the culmination of an RFU programme to increase the amount of teenage girls playing rugby. England women’s player Emily Scott – who plays for Thurrock’s womens side – was on hand and did a question and answer session, while Sky’s television cameras filmed the event.
Matches were played at Stanford RFC’s ground at Stanford Rec. Teams from St Clere’s, Gable Hall and Gateway took part.
