Girls have been getting good and muddy at Sidmouth College this term ahead of a new women’s rugby session.

The Year Eight and Nine girls have been working alongside coaches from Devon RFU and Sidmouth Rugby Club to get a structured introduction to the contact elements of the game in their PE lessons.

The school hopes the girls will be inspired to go to the launch of the women’s section at Sidmouth RFC on Sunday, October 7, from 3pm to 4pm.

It will be run by qualified coaches, but the club is looking for support from interested parents.
