We are so excited and proud of Yeovil Rugby Club Girls player Leila Chubb (13) who has been selected to be part of the National Girls Rugby Club XV! Leila has played for Yeovil since she was 6 years old and has grown into a dedicated and skilful player, passionate about improving for herself and for her team and very proud to play at Yeovil.
Girls Rugby Club was founded by England and Harlequins Women’s captain Rachael Burford - designed to empower women, grow the game and tackle issues women face. A Global Rugby Club built by girls for girls.
Harnessing the power of rugby to develop extraordinary females.
The Girls Rugby Club is designed to empower girls to play their best game and live their best life, with expert coaching from those who understand that women are not just small men. Our coaches include current and former England internationals and some of the best brains in the game, all passionate about sharing their knowledge whilst nurturing and developing young female rugby talent.
An extension of this is the National Girls Rugby Club XV - a group of 15 young female rugby leaders, who will lead us on our mission and help to shape the Girls Rugby Club moving forward . These young women have incredible passion, dedication and enthusiasm for rugby and are the next generation of the game.
GRC explains “It’s really important to us that we provide a space for our youngest members to have a voice, to share their thoughts, ideas, concerns and aspirations so that we can implement positive changes and provide opportunities that meet their needs”
Yeovil has much in common with GRC, including Yeovil’s passion for promoting girls and womens rugby and being as inclusive as possible. This enables players, male and female to develop not just into a better rugby player but also into a better people. When sport is inclusive, everyone wins!
We can see White shirts and red roses in both these girls futures but till then, they are both rocking the Yeovil quarters and making not just their team but the club as a whole, very proud.
