CRFU Women and Girls

A Great Day at Helston


What can I say other than a full clubhouse is a happy clubhouse. Fifty women and girls descended upon Helston RFC clubhouse on Sunday 13th August and played some very fine touch rugby. This was followed by cheering on the Red Roses as they stormed to their second victory in the Women’s Rugby World Cup.


Another side of the day was to thank the sponsors of the Cornish Maids. This team is made up of girls from Camborne, Helston, Penryn, Penzance and St Austell across all three girls age groups (Under 13, Under 15 and Under 18). This has been a successful venture which continues to go from strength to strength.


A big thank you to the CRFU for their continued support. It was great to see the CRFU Chair, Denis Preece, in attendance with his rugby playing granddaughter on holiday from Hertfordshire. We were also pleased to welcome a woman on holiday from the midlands who came to join the fun.

Michaella Roberts Selected for England U 18s

Michaella Roberts, one of our current Cornwall U18s girls, has been selected to play for England U18s v  Canada on Tuesday 5th April.

Michaella started playing rugby at the age of 9 at Camborne RFC and was awarded the 'most improved player and player of the season' at U12s. Her (mixed) team also won the county U12 championship. At U13s Michaella had to play all-girls rugby and moved to Newquay Queen Bees for three seasons. The time came to help set up girls rugby at Camborne and she moved back to Camborne RFC for another three seasons helping to establish the now successful girls rugby set up at her home club.

Michaella has played for Cornwall throughout  the U15sand U18s captaining both age groups. She was soon picked up to play for the successful South West Divisional squads representing them at U15 and U18 levels. This led on to her selection to the RFU talent development group (TDG) later known as the RFU junior academy.

A years ago whilst playing for Camborne U18 girls against Devonport, Michaella sustained a broken fibula which had to be pinned and plated. It is down to her sheer determination and hard work that she was back playing in September, captaining Cornwall U18 girls and then being selected for the SW Academy.

Michaella is now playing senior rugby at Plymouth Albion ladies scoring two tries and forward of the match on her debut against the Royal Navy Women.  Her parents, Dave and Rebecca Roberts, are her biggest supporters travelling miles for matches week in week out. Her father has helped coach her at club and county and is now part of her coaching team at Plymouth Albion.

Michaella's selection for the England TDG squad against Canada U18 girls on Tuesday 5th of April is hopefully the start of her international career. Undoubtedly talented, it also takes hard work and dedication to make it at National level. Michaella hopes to represent Cornwall for the first time at senior level in May in the Women's County Championship.

Congratuations Michaella from all at the CRFU!
