A COMBINED team from Montrose Rugby and Lathallan School took part in the Girls’ Rugby National Sevens finals day in Edinburgh last weekend.

Coached by Caroline Campbell, Montrose Rugby, the girls have trained together for two months. This was their first competitive event as a joint side. After a workshop by Iain Millar, Scottish Rugby, the girls played against a joint team from Gala and Hawick.

The first half was close with the northern girls coping with strong, fast running from the Borders side. In the second period the Montrose/Lathallan girls pulled out all of the stops to come out 9-6 winners.

Shona Campbell, Montrose, was Under-12 Player of the Tournament and received a player issue Scottish Women’s Six Nations jersey.
