Selected for England National Academy v Canada Maple Leafs
Lucy Demaine has made a further step forward in her rugby career by being selected as part of the England Women’s National Academy squad who played Canada Maple Leaves at Esher RFC last Tuesday and won 37:29. On Saturday 5th December, they met again at 2pm at Esher RFC when Lucy will be starting at outside centre and will take up kicking duties.
Lucy started her rugby career aged 7 at Liskeard Looe RFC and then Liskeard Leopards WRFC, played representative rugby for Cornwall, captaining u15s and u18s sides, as well as playing for the South West Region, before moving to University to read Medicine. Aged 15, she was part of the original England U18s TDG and played for the U20s as well as the highly successful Exeter University XV and 7’s sides, winning BUCS Gold in both forms of the game, whilst playing her club rugby with Bristol Ladies.
Now qualified as a junior doctor, she is working in West Wales where she currently plays for the premiership side at Whitland RFC, as well as Scarlets Women. She received the call from Scott Bemand, the England XV’s coach 3 weeks ago to join the National England Women’s Academy and play the two games against Canada.
