Gloucestershire Echo - - SPORT -

» BROCKWORTH RFC are run­ning a girls rugby taster afternoon at Mill Lane on Satur­day (1-3pm) as an ini­tia­tive to get more girls in­volved in rugby.

The Bad­gers are hop­ing to grow the strong con­tin­gent of mini/youth play­ers al­ready at the club and pro­vide a path­way for girls to con­tinue with rugby af­ter age of 13.

A club spokesman said: We are proud to have a very strong girl con­tin­gent within our Mini sec­tion which we are look­ing to strengthen in the com­ing years.

“We are very keen to in­crease our fe­male play­ing num­bers sooner rather than later. We also hope that this may in­ter­est any older play­ers that would pos­si­bly like to get in­volved with our ladies team.”
