Since 1993, the Salisbury Women’s Rugby Team has been built on hard work, dedication, and above all, a love for each other and the sport of rugby. This team has been faced with a lot of challenges: small numbers, issues with coaching, and some low-scoring seasons.
The U12’s kicked off on Saturday for a beautiful Easter weekend of Rugby in Greenwich, CT. While Morris took an early 14-0 lead against a strong Greenwich side, the home team eventually worked their way back into the game, taking a lead of their own in a very exciting back and forth game of Rugby.
With a few of the Morris girls unable to make this year’s Maryland Exiles Tournament in Virginia due to college tests, family commitments, and a few other reasons, Morris was light of a full side, so invited several friends to guest with them from the NY Rugby Club (NYRC).
It was a hard and well-fought match on both sides as the Morris Men battled the NYRC in the Empire GU playoff.
With a great day for rugby, Morris arrived in Philadelphia ready for battle against their EPRU foe.
Training is mandatory for all new referees and is provided in one classroom session and one practical field session. Returning Refs are encouraged to attend to brush up or prepare to move up to the next level. Training is scheduled for late May/early June.
