Women play first rugby match for Macc
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.”
