All awarded players received a trophy to take away, while in addition the coach's player winners have their names engraved on a trophy to be awarded annually and displayed at the club.

The girls were presented with new match shirts for the coming season by coach Zoe Dumbell, bearing the “Our Missing Peace” logo.

This is a charity supporting families who have lost children.

The girls will now be enjoying their summer break while continuing with strength and fitness training on Wednesday nights before returning to full training and match play in September.

Anyone wanting to try rugby union should contact the club directly and you will be made welcome.
