Kapi-Mana News - - SPORTS -

The Pare­mata- Plim­mer­ton An­gelfish capped off an ex­cel­lent sea­son with a win over an­other all-girls team.

Pre­vi­ously the re­gion’s only all­girl rugby team, the un­der-7 side in­spired Wests to form a girls team.

The two sides met at Ngati­toa Do­main in a high-spir­ited af­fair won by the An­gelfish 15-8.

The side have had a mixed sea­son re­sults- wise but at­tracted plenty of pos­i­tive feed­back about their at­ti­tude and team work. They also se­cured a spon­sor, Yah­zoo Hair­dress­ing.

This Sun­day the An­gelfish will at­tend a Girls in Rugby event at Poneke Rugby Football Club where they will meet Black Ferns’ play­ers.
