with guest coach TK (thank you!) our girls found fierce opposition in Thurrock/Rochford at last weekend's Area 3 U15s Plate semi final.  Facing an unbeaten scrum front line they were able to retain the ball a few times and pushed through the line to score two tries; one of which was a fantastic run half way down the pitch by Maddie.  A further conversion gave us a total score of 12. Our girls put up a strong defence against Thurrock/Rochford, who proved too much in the end scoring a total of 45.  In the face of some physical and verbal challenges our girls held their own and were a true credit to SRFC - in particular Jess; you know why :-).

The team consisted of: Maddie Bryan (5), Kate Crudgington, Olivia Crudgington, Catherine Davies (5), Katie Kelly, Phoebe Leach (2), Sasha Petrie, Jess Richards, Ellie Schwemm, Sally Williams
