Year 10 pupil Rhiannon Fox-Rothwell is now part of the North of
England Girls' Rugby squad.
Rhiannon has been playing rugby since she was three years old
and played for Trafford MV and Eccles before joining current
club, Tyldesley Girls. It was from there that she was scouted
to play for Lancashire and she has been with the county team for
the past two years.
Rhiannon played at scrum-half in the recent 24-10 North of
England victory over the Midlands and is now looking forward to a
two day tournament at the end of the month at Hartpury in
Talking about her love of rugby, Rhiannon said: "I am passionate
about rugby. Women's rugby is growing but it is often
perceived as a 'boys' sport' but it should just be seen as a
sport. Like all sport, it teaches you
good discipline. For me, the
best conditions for rugby are when it is muddy as it
lessens the impact when you hit the ground. Right
now I am focussed on playing my best for the North of England but
the next obvious progression would be the national team."
