The South West were up against a well drilled team from the South East. In the first half the pace of the two South West wingers was too much for the opposition and very quickly they scored two tries to make the score 12 - 0. The South East fought back and by half time the score was 19 - 14 in favour of the South West.

In the second half the South West used a squad rotational system to give other players the chance to show their skills. This suited the South East who went on to win 19 - 33.

This was a true squad effort from the Manager, Head and Assistant Coaches to all the South West girls who played together to produce a creditable performance although the result went against them.

Katie said: "I play because I wanted to try something different and challenge myself.

"We all love rugby and that is why we do it.

"Even though we lost, we have learnt a great deal from this match."

The third and final match of the Regional Championship will be played against the North on Sunday 7 May in Birmingham.

Katie a year 10 pupil at Worle Community School in Weston-super-Mare will move up to Under 18 next season where there will be further opportunities to progress to the England national programme. 26,000 women and girls regularly play rugby in England in this up and coming sport.

South West Rugby - Katie Reynolds

The South West showed their class by holding on to their passes and not missing their tackles. In the first half they were soon two tries up and finished the half 17 - 0.

The second half saw them score another three tries making the final score 32 - 0. The final try being set up by their captain who quickly took a tap penalty before passing for the touch down.

The players really enjoyed the experience and can take a lot of credit from how they performed. It was how the coaches wanted them to play and they really showed their quality.

Katie would like to thank the Hornets RFC, Somerset County RFU, South West RFU and in particular the coaches who have helped her achieve this standard of rugby. Not forgetting her parents Richard and Catherine Reynolds for their support and providing transport to all of the matches and training sessions.
