Mia Abbott-Smith has been successful in the recent Under 18 Girls Centre of Excellence (formally South West divisional) trials at Cleve RFC, home of Bristol ladies.
Mia, who is only 15, of Penryn RFC (formally Camborne) will now attend sessions and receive mentoring from the newly formed Centre of Excellence team.
Six girls were nominated with five attending the trial. Feedback from the girls regarding the new set-up was encouraging. The Centre of Excellence will not only be coaching the girls but mentoring them in areas such as nutrition and rehabilitation pre and post match to develop the player.
Everyone involved in the CRFU and particularly those involved in Women and Girls rugby wish Mia all the very best and hope she enjoys this amazing opportunity.
