Thirty-one girls from years 7-10 took part in a rugby tournament organised by the RFU rugby development coaches held at Ashby RFC on Thursday 5 November. Dixie had the most participants putting out twelve girls in the Year 7/8 team and nineteen girls in the Year 9/10 tournament.
The older girls had already played two previous matches and had several training sessions so they were very competitive in their games. The younger girls were playing rugby for the first time and they also really enjoyed themselves as they improved with each game. Both teams played five games managing to score several tries and judging from their coverings of mud every girl got stuck in!
They are already signed up for another tournament in December and have some matches against other schools lined up for the future.
