Woodbridge Amazons looking for new players

WOODBRIDGE Amazons are looking for new players to bolster their ranks.

shares

The tough-tackling girls play in National Challenge LeagUe SE1 and are just two steps away from Premiership rugby.

They train on Wednesday evenings and, as I encountered during a training session last year for a feature I penned, they are a very friendly bunch – albeit a friendly bunch that are incredibly uncompromising in the tackle.

The team are looking for players of all abilities, to play in any position, although the front-row is slightly depleted at the moment.

Amazons player, Sarah Thomas, said: “I would encourage anyone to come along and give rugby a go.

“We are a friendly, fun club and are part of a bigger set-up with the other teams at the club.”

Blues boss Mick McCarthy refused to criticise his players after this defeat but will surely be disappointed at the manner in which his team surrendered top spot in the Championship.
