Santa Claus Blitz
3rd December Virginia RFC
Twelve of our u12 girls joined well over one hundred girls for the wonderful Santa Claus Blitz at Virginia RFC on Sunday morning. Despite the damp day spirits were high with plenty of santa outfits on children and adults alike. The day kicked off with a team photo with Mrs Claus. Then straight into games.
They had four, ten-minute games, in total. They met Armagh, Skerries/North Meath combo, Dundalk and then our friends from Mullingar. They lost one game, won one game and drew two. A very respectable outcome. A lot of very tired and mucky but happy girls after forty minutes of rugby.
Tries were scored by Emma Brogan(6), Sarah Molloy, Sophie O’Neill and Kym McGrath. The rest of the team were Sarah Byrne, Shauna Hogan, Ellen Hogan, Lillian Brady, Emma Hyland, Katie Kearney, Olivia Finnegan, Lia MacEwan and Emily Flynn.
Next was the group photo and then in for curry, soup and sandwiches. Virginia outdid themselves on the food. Each girl got a selection box from Mrs Claus on the way home.
Looking forward to it next year.
