WOMEN across the county are being encouraged to step out of their comfort zones and try the sport of rugby.

Greyhound Ladies RFC are encouraging women to bring a friend with them to their Warrior Camp on Thursday, January 24, between 6.45pm and 8.30pm at Hereford City Sports Club, on Grandstand Road.

During the Warrior Camps, women are encouraged to unleash their inner strength and determination as they embrace the challenge of trying a new sport.

The sessions consists of paired activities that are used to teach participants the skills and techniques of rugby.

The activities require players to work together to all learn, have fun and succeed.

Greyhound are currently in the title race for the Women's NC Midlands 2 (South).

After back-to-back wins they top the table after 10 of 14 matched being played, but their rivals have matches in hand.

Despite losing to Dursley earlier in the season Greyhound turned the tables with a 33-12 victory.

Carly Whent continued her try scoring form for the visitors storming over the whitewash early on.

Dursley ladies fought back but after some quick rucking and passing, the ball found its way to Whent again for her second try under the posts, after a sprint uphill from the half-way line.

An unfortunate penalty was awarded to Dursley by the try line giving Greyhound a12-5 half-time lead.

Playing down the hill Whent used her pace to power over again after the break to secure her hat-trick, with the consistent Laura Jenkins adding the extras.

Dursley managed to claw back some points to make it 19-12.

However, this only spurred Greyhound on and after a successful penalty kick from touch, Claire Higginson received a short line out to Dursley’s surprise and a quick pass out to Michelle Ruddock with a great weave through the players, saw her with her try for the day.

The game ended with another converted try from Whent, for her 25th try of the season.

Greyhound ladies now face a two-week break before taking on Wellingborough Ladies at home on Sunday, February 4.
