Heavenly outing for Angelfish
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.
