Hornettes captain leads South West…
In the final regional match of the season Worle Community School year 10 pupil Katie Reynolds completed the treble by captaining the South West of England Under 15 rugby team in all of their matches this season. The match against the North was played at Birmingham Exiles RFC in Solihull. Hornettes Captain and Somerset player Katie led the team out and played in her club position of No 8.
The first-half was an evenly contested with the South West losing by two tries to one. This gave a half time score of 5 – 14 points.
After the break the North had the upper hand and made the South West pay with several break away ties. But they showed great spirit by fighting back and scoring two tries of their own. The final score ended with the South West losing by 15 – 43.
Over the last few weeks they’ve competed well against some of the top players in the country. With several players showing good potential for the future.
Katie said: “It has been a great season for me but next season there will be greater challenges when I move up to Under-18s.
“I would like to thank Worle School, Hornets, friends and family for all the support that I have had this season.”
Her representative honours this season for Somerset and the South West show that she has played in all matches. Playing seven, winning five and losing two. With the honour of captaining the South West in all of their matches.
