A hot, and un-rugby like weather was the setting for 7 of St Augustine’s finest Year 7 and 8 rugby girls.
A lot was at stake with a top 2 position out of the 3 teams guaranteeing a place in this years Wiltshire Games Final at Marlborough College, with the chance of becoming Wiltshire Champions 2017.
The girls were first out on the pitch against St Laurence ‘A’, with good play, and quick thinking the difference between the two sides, tries from Aurea Parker and Cat Westley gave the girls a comfortable 2-0 win!
After a much needed water break, the girls went out again knowing a draw or a win would be enough to top the group and therefore be West Wilts Champions, and that is exactly what they did! After dominating the match through brilliant defending, as well quick and skillful attacking, the girls drew their second match 1-1 to become West Wiltshire Champions 2017! An incredible effort considering they have only been working as a team for 5 weeks!
Bring on the Wiltshire Games!
