Heav­enly out­ing for An­gelfish

Kapi-Mana News - - SPORT - By KRIS DANDO

The An­gelfish have had a busy few weeks.

Since ap­pear­ing in KapiMana News in June, the Pare­mata-Plim­mer­ton RFC un­der-7 Rippa all-girl rugby team were in­vited to a Hur­ri­canes train­ing ses­sion, where they met play­ers Cory Jane, An­dre Tay­lor and Faifili Le­vave, toured the fa­cil­i­ties at Rugby League Park and ap­peared on TVNZ’s Small Blacks show.

‘‘ It went re­ally well, al­though the weather was pretty ter­ri­ble,’’ Peter Jones says.

The in­ter­est shown in the team has boosted girls’ rugby par­tic­i­pa­tion, with four join­ing the team last month.

‘‘It’s great to show rugby in a pos­i­tive light,’’ Jones says.
