Girls come and try Rugby sessions

Another sensational day down at the Alleygators Rugby club for the last of our Girls come and try Rugby sessions.

There was plenty of fun and Rugby skills had by all and we were lucky to have our star U17s Girls player Jemma Bemrose comedown to help out, and also the advice and coaching from Matt “Chooka” Wildman too.

The Girls loved the Scrum machine work, and we had plenty of gameplay to finish out the year on a high. Great work Girls and stay up to date on Facebook for future sessions.
