Newman U18 Girls Rugby WIN National Sevens Tournament!
On Friday 24 March 2023 our U18 Newman Girls Rugby team became national champions at Rosslyn Park National School Sevens event!
The girls played incredibly well throughout the tournament, scoring high against other teams in each round and finishing with a 36-7 win in the final.
The team form part of our Newman Trailfinders Rugby Academy, which allows students to develop themselves and play a high standard of rugby, alongside their academic studies. It is an all year round (three terms) programme that uses the off-season to enhance strength, conditioning and performance.
This academy has created an environment that develops high playing levels and understanding, establishing a strong team environment for like-minded individuals whilst creating ongoing pathways, such as university scholarships and big clubs.
Newman Rugby also have a formal contract with Ealing Trailfinders (championship pro rugby club). They provide access to top coaching and playing facilities, and sponsor players through university. The club send them playing footage and they attend games to scout our players for possible professional career support and contracts. We also run an U16 invitational program in the evenings for Ealing Trailfinders.
We are extremely proud of all the girls that took part in this tournament, it's such a great achievement!
