The progress of girls’ rugby at Worth

Worth School

While Worth celebrates one of our rugby boys making his England U18s debut and two other boys being picked for Sussex U17s, we are also delighted with the excellent progress of girls’ rugby at the School.

At the Rosslyn Park National Sevens in March, our 1st VII girls qualified for the second day of competition after going unbeaten in their group, winning three games and drawing the other against Oundle School who took top spot on points difference.

Having first competed at the national sevens in 2022, this was the third year in succession our girls had progressed to the second day of competition, which is a tremendous achievement and testimony to the hard work of the girls.

A rugby sevens programme for girls has been running at Worth since 2019 with lots of popularity and great success. The girls played their first ever tournament during the 2021-22 academic year, reaching the Plate final of the Worthing tournament, and the following year they reached the final of the Reigate tournament. In addition, one of our girls was picked for Sussex U18s in March 2022.

The programme is run by Head of Rugby Mr Tom Richardson, who spent time as a player with Worcester and Gloucester. Before coming to Worth, Mr Richardson coached girls’ rugby at another school in Gloucestershire.

Well done girls for your continuing achievements.
