Highland Women have 3 ties in National Bowl
Highland Womens rugby team have entered the National Bowl, this will give the team 3 competitive matches and much needed game time to reward the hard work at training.
The womens rugby section has come on leaps and bounds since starting slowly last summer.
Numbers at training have been fantastic and the enthusiasm is contagious. The numbers were so good that womens team took a squad of 25 players to their recent friendly match against Perthshire RFC. The team won 54-5 in their first proper 15 a-side game as a Highland team.
We all know that we do the training to improve and in the hope of getting a game come Saturday or Sunday. This is why it is so good that we now know that the Women will have three fixtures to put all their hard work into practice and gain some vital experience.
