Rugby girls’ success

Two girls from Pool Academy were given medals after competing in a beach rugby festival recently.

Grace Pellow-Firth and Daisy Taylor, from Year, represented Camborne RFC Ladies Youth Section at Marazion Beach Rugby Festival.

There were approximately 20 different teams taking part from firefighters to youth project members.

The girls’ team played well and came second overall.

Daisy’s mother said: “The whole team were outstanding, playing against mixed teams of adults and young people.

“Overall the girls’ team came second in the tournament and were given medals.

“Well done to everyone involved.”

Mrs Taylor said Daisy loves to play rugby and had a number of games lined up over the summer holidays. She said Camborne RFC Ladies were going to host a future beach rugby event at Carbis Bay.

In May this year the girls took part in an Under 15s tournament in Barnstable with their team and won.

Mrs Taylor said her daughter loves playing rugby.
