A NEW development centre for girls rugby will open later this month at the home of two World Cup winners.

Drybrook RFC, who boast Ceri Large and Natasha Hunt as alumni, will host a new county-wide development programme drawn up by Gloucester academy coaches Neil McCarthy, Kevin Mannion, Alex Guest and Robin Eager.

Open to all girls throughout Gloucestershire between Under-13 and Under-18, the programme will focus on core skills, movement patterns, behavioural awareness and the fundamentals of rugby.

Previous rugby experience is not necessary; just a willingness to get involved. All abilities will be catered for.

There will be a dedicated coaching team including coaches from the host clubs organised by the centre manager Kirsty Fido.

Registration for the first session on Friday February 24 is at 6.30-7pm and the free sessions will continue every Friday evening until March 17.

For more information, contact Kirsty on [email protected] or GRFU chairman of women and girls rugby Rez Aminnia on [email protected].
