Cornwall Ladies Prepare for the 2017/18 Campaign

The ladies recently undertook a challenging weekend of trials and training in preparation for their county championship campaign. Head coach Martyn Ruskin is pictured with the ladies.

Trials held across two days saw 28 ladies from Bude, all the way down to Penzance brave the conditions to show the coaches just what talent and commitment there is in the county. Some even attended both days to gain extra experience and training to achieve game time during a particularly difficult time owing to the atrocious weather.

There are still at least 5 more ladies who need to trial but could not due to prior commitments and they will be looked at during the friendly fixture.

As you can see it looks like the ladies enjoyed the sessions!

A huge thank you to Launceston RFC and Truro College for hosting us.
