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!

Lucy Demaine Crosses for England Women

Well done to Lucy who came off the bench to make her debut for England Women to score England's fifth try!


Congratulations to Lucy Demaine who has been named on the bench for the Six Nations opener against Scotland at the Broadwood Stadium, Cumbernauld on Friday 5th February, K.O. 6.00 p.m. The game will be shown live on England Rugby TV.

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.

Cornwall County Women and Girls Rugby Development Squad Nomination Form 2015/2016

Dear Ladies,

I am pleased to let you know that for the 2015/2016 season the RFU has introduced a new two-tiered County Championship Competition. Cornwall is well placed in the lower tier, the Women’s Regional Plate County Championship, which will allow us the opportunity to compete against 3 other similar County squads.

The Senior Ladies County Management team, however, consider that a period of ladies’ development followed by the competitive matches will best benefit ladies within our CB. For this reason, they have put together the following programme which is open to all ladies over 18 years of age, whatever their previous experience, who are playing rugby in Cornwall or are otherwise eligible to do so.

We have previously advertised a ‘Save the Date’ for the launch date and look forward to seeing you on the 27th January from 1900-2100 at Bodmin RFC. Please do spread the word to interested players.

Many thanks,

Ann Demaine,
Chair, Cornwall RFU Women and Girls Group
