IRFU Girls Consultation Day
Navan RFC was asked to nominate some players from the Under 14’s Team to represent our club. Cara Martin, Leah Morris, Ally Cullivan and Lauren Fitzpatrick kindly agreed to attend. It’s well known within the squad these girls play good rugby but are even better at talking and giving their opinions.
The purpose of the session was to consult with female Age-Grade Players to gather their thoughts, concerns and issues in relation to rugby.
The girls were in attendance with other players from some of the most prestigious clubs from all around Ireland. The girls were split into focus groups and asked their opinions regarding the next steps for their progression from Under 14’s to the Ireland side.
They were given time to discuss; their likes and dislikes of rugby to-date, how to progress women’s rugby over the coming years. Our girls were amazed that some clubs can only field small numbers of girls in rugby. The IRFU were delighted that we regularly field 20-23 girls. That’s a credit to all our girls, Parents and Club.
Keep up the Great Work!!
