The Copthorne girls were by far the best team at this annual mini-tournament! 

Our first match was against Shoreham.  The girls were really excited and for the first couple of minutes we stood off and watched what are opponents could do.  However, it wasn’t long before we decided to run the ball with Harri leading the charge from the middle!  Excellent support play by Ronnie and Sophie with some lovely passing out to Meg on the wing.  All 4 girls scored trys and we saw another one from Abi.  Brilliant!  We won this game 6-0.

Next up was Ardingly.  We were determined to get our own back after narrowly losing to our opponents last year.  The girls didn’t disappoint.  Once again we passed the ball brilliantly and ran into the gaps, with some great dodging runs from Sophie, Harri, Ronnie and Meg.  Fabulous support play from Joanna, Charlotte, Amber and Francesca.  We won 5-0.

Our last game was against Great Walstead.  Our opponents had some good runners, and it wasn’t long before we had a game on our hands with the scoreline at 2-1.  However, it was our rugby knowledge, pace and passing that won us this game and we finished with a 4-2 win.  Great team work girls!

Huge congratulations to the team: Sophie, Harri, Ronnie, Meg, Jo, Charlotte, Amber, Abi & Francesca.  A massive thank you to Coach Coulson who gave up his time to coach the girls, and a big thank you to the mums who came to support us.

Well done girls!  MJ
