Cluster Festival Kicks Off In Fife

The second of this season’s girls' rugby cluster events in Fife look place yesterday (Monday) led by Fifie development officer Paul Hunter and assisted by John Arnold (community coach).

The session consisted of 45 minutes skills stations developing tackle technique and off load as well as introducing the scrum to many of the girls there.

The second session was a 7s tournament which most of the girls took part in. Some of the girls attending had already benefited from cluster events earlier in the year.

Nicky Burge, Glenwood high School PE teacher said: "It was great to see new girls at this event that included pupils from S1 to S6 from Glenwood, Madras, Lochgelly and St Columba’s. This event also saw the first Merit League games played in Fife which is a really encouraging development as a number of schools seem to be establishing a regular group who are keen to take part in girl rugby.

"This was a successful event that continued to raise the profile of rugby to a group of enthusiastic from Fife secondary schools. The girls clearly enjoyed the event and it was very encouraging to see many of the same faces."
