IN what could only be described as a great game for spectators, Northumberland U15 Girls sent Yorkshire home with a 36-15 defeat on Sunday.

Both sides turned up in full force and the skill and commitment displayed by both sides was only surpassed by the sounds of appreciation from the sidelines.

Alnwick RFC not only contributed six girls to the county squad but also claimed all six tries for Northumberland.

Three came from wing Caitlan Wood, who exploited the opportunities she was given simply to outpace the Yorkshire back-line, and three from captain Jessica Young, who led by example and demonstrated great vision and experience of the game with some cutting angles, leaving the Yorkshire defence chasing her heels.

Alnwick Girls Rugby meet on Tuesday evenings at 5.30pm.
