The newly established Women’s Rugby Side at Worthing College, have made a promising start to the season with four ladies being selected to represent the British Colleges Sport South East Regional Squad, along with the team narrowly missing out in the Quarter finals of the British Colleges National Cup,
“We were unlucky not to win the match against Peter Symonds College in BCS women’s cup, however we took away a number of positives” said Mark Rugman the Women’s Rugby Coach. “To have 3 players who have never play rugby before and this being the teams first game is a big credit to where the girls have come in 8 weeks”.
Furthermore, “for the four ladies to be selected for the BCS South East Regional Squad is a fantastic achievement not only for the College, but also for ladies. This is the principle of representative honors for 16-19 year old females, and to play at Bath University against other regions including Wales and Scotland is a very exciting opportunity”.
