Cornwall Women 10 v Hertfordshire Women 48

Marina Trevarton’s photo shows the Cornish Women on the attack.

Cornwall Women concluded their Gill Burns Women’s County Championship campaign, going down to a well-organised Hertfordshire side which boasted several Women’s Premiership players.

The Cornish girls gave a good account of themselves, defending steadfastly and showing tremendous character and spirit for the full eighty minutes.

This is the first season that Cornwall has entered the competition and congratulations should go to all who have worked hard to move the women’s game forward in the county. Competing at this level was a big step up and a win against Somerset was a bonus.

The 2018 results were:

Gill Burns Division Two Pool Three

Sunday 29th April - Dorset & Wilts 74 – 0 Cornwall

Sunday 6th May – Cornwall 37 – 12 Somerset

Sunday 13th May – Cornwall 10 – 48 Hertfordshire

Cornwall Ladies v Somerset Ladies

Polson Bridge - Sunday 6th May 2.30 p.m.

Cornwall Ladies completed their first ever fixture in Division Two of the Gill Burns Women’s County Championship on Sunday 29th April. It was a notable step forward in the development of the ladies’ game in Cornwall as playing the game was more important than the result.

Despite going down to Dorset & Wilts by 74 points to 0 the ladies will have learnt much about county championship rugby to take into this Sunday’s game (6th May) when they meet Somerset at Launceston (K.O. 2.30 p.m.).

If you are not going to Twickenham to support Saltash and Cornwall U20s then why not make your way to Polson Bridge and give the ladies your support?

The squad which met Dorset & Wilts was:

  1 Lydia Furse (Bude)
  2 Zeta Penrose (Penryn) Captain
  3 Jessica Howell (Penryn)
  4 Rachel Shackleton (Bude)
  5 Oriel Brazier (Penryn)
  6 Nicole Rowland (Bude)
  7 Verity Waters (Plymouth Albion)
  8 Jo Holden (Plymouth Albion)
  9 Steph Trapp (Penryn)
10 Jessie Humber (Penryn/Plymouth Albion)
11 Ro Gomez (Penryn)
12 Imogen Miller (Penryn)
13 Claire Thompson (Penryn)
14 Emma Stefanotti (Bude)
15 Frankie Perry (Bude)


16 Clare Matthews (Penryn)
17 Claire Onions (Bude)
18 Cozette Shrosbree (Penzance)
19 Louise Snelson (St Austell)
20 Cheryl Goodwin (Portsmouth Valkaryies)
21 Martha Simons (Penryn)

Mia Abbott-Smith Selected for Bristol Centre of Excellence

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.
