England V Canada – Twickenham Trip

Fourteen girls from Harton Academy’s U15’s Rugby team travelled down to Twickenham to watch the Red Roses in the final of the Old Mutual Wealth Cup, where England won convincingly, scoring many excellent individual and team tries.

April, one of our year 10 students, had the opportunity to be a mascot for the match, running out onto the pitch alongside the England team, and singing the national anthem before the match.

The girls even managed to meet a few of the England Men’s squad, including Danny Care and George Ford. They were pretty happy about this, and many selfies were taken!

All in all, it was a marvellous trip, and our girls were commended by the RFU co-ordinator on their excellent behaviour.
