Flying the flag for Girls rugby

From its humble beginning in 1939, Rosslyn Park National Schools Sevens has been held every year since becoming one of the oldest continuous tournaments in the world

Originally it was a knock-out competition for public schools but as interest grew it was extended to include grammar, comprehensive and preparatory schools.

In 1998 the first girls (U18) competition was inaugurated. This year there are 32 female teams competing.

Our squad of 14 is travelling to London on Monday and competing all day Tuesday.

They are in the same group as Seaford College, Wellington College, and Oakham School.

Their coach Jess Kavanagh, who is a former Welsh Women’s Rugby International herself, said: “I’m hoping we’ll make it to the knockout stages,” she said.

“Anything can happen in a 7s tournament as it’s such a fast game.

“The girls are super excited to go and compete in such a prestigious and well-known tournament, they’ve got brand new travelling kit and really look the part.”

The team is the only one to compete in the tournament from North Wales. As a school we are immensely proud of them, and we wish them all the very best of luck!
