Georgia left in schools Sevens heaven with Games bronze
GEORGIA Newman scooped bronze as she helped England South East to third place in the rugby sevens at the National School Games last weekend.
Newman, who is a pupil at George Abbot School in Guildford, enjoyed a fantastic tournament, scoring eight tries across the two days.
She said: “We were left disappointed after losing some games earlier on in the weekend but we were really motivated to win and have the drive to keep pushing forward. To win bronze is just amazing.
“It’s been very cool to play against other countries for the first time, such as Scotland; it’s such a new experience for us.”
The School Games are an integrated multi-sport event for the UK’s most talented school-age athletes, with around 1,600 athletes competing across 12 sports, seven of which included disability disciplines.
