Girls u13 & u15 Festival at Novocastrians
5th February 1pm – 3pm
On a glorious sunny afternoon, some forty-four u13s girls and twenty four u15s attended a festival hosted by Novos Rugby Club.
The u13s girls were split into four teams, Ponteland, Morpeth & Tynedale each had a team. A side from Blyth, Rockcliffe, Novos and Ponteland made up the fourth side so that they could play a small round robin tournament. All four teams played well, with support play & some direct running with the ball quite evident from several players.
The u15s were mainly from Tynedale & Morpeth but some Rockcliff and Novos girls mixed in with the main two teams. The format was three 20min sessions with some coaching and team changes to even the teams. Some brilliant rugby was played, all players enjoying the open festival.
Big thankyou to Jess Clapperton u18s who refereed all three sessions for the u15s matches. Jess recently successfully passed her level 2 Referees award and is improving each match.
Well done to all players and coaches who attended and thanks to Novos for their hospitality.
