Over 75 girls from across Hampshire were nominated by their respective clubs and schools to attend a 2 stage trial at Havant Rugby Fooball Club. On Friday 31st of January in driving rain the girls were asked to work in groups demonstrating various skills under the watchful eye of the 20 assessors.
50 were then selected to attend a further Trial on the Sunday comprising position specific training and a series of matches.
Millie was successful and will be part of the 32 strong 2020 squad who will represent their county in 7’s 10’s and full rugby matches.
Millie is excited to be part of the squad and is intending to use it as an opportunity to raise her profile within the game.
“Ultimately I’d love to have the chance to play professional rugby and represent my country and this represents a step in that direction” said Millie.
