Women play first rugby match for Macc

Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE -

WOMEN play­ers at Mac­cles­field RUFC played their first game this week­end.

The home match took place on Satur­day against Sh­effield Uni­ver­sity and for many play­ers was their first ever com­pet­i­tive game.

They scored three tries - one of which was con­verted - but de­spite a spir­ited dis­play lost 17-52.

Phil Ma­son, from Mac­cles­field RUFC, said: “How­ever the day was not about the score.

“The day was about launch­ing a brand new first XV at Mac­cles­field RUFC, and al­low­ing both sides’ play­ers to gain match ex­pe­ri­ence in a com­pet­i­tive en­vi­ron­ment.”
