Women’s Rugby at Worthing College – A New Era

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”.


Exciting opportunity at Worthing College for Women Rugby Players…….

Worthing College is running a women’s rugby team for the 2012/2013 season catering for beginners to experienced players. Competing initially in non-contact games for the first couple of months, players will have the opportunity to progress their game skills, game understanding and condition themselves to play the 7s and 10s contact game for the rest of the season.

Worthing College has a rich tradition of rugby in both the male and female game, and is especially successful in developing rugby players. In the Women’s game players have joined the team with no previous playing ability, but have gone on to play county and regional rugby. For example, Amy Wilson-Hardy progressed through Worthing College to go on to represent the England U20s, and captained the Worthing College team to a top five team in the country at 7s.
