Women’s 7s Report

On September 30 and October 9, our women’s team participated in the Southern Highlands 7s and Mudgee 7s competitions, their first ever regional tournaments. When each weekend arrived the lead up was met with lots of nerves and even more excitement for the challenges ahead.

Southern Highlands took place in Bowral, a one and a half hour drive from Sydney. An early morning start, and lots of coffee to start the day, everyone arrived at the fields with probably less warm gear than we needed! The day warmed up as it went on, however, and we won our first game against Hunters Hill, a team we had lost to the last time we played them. By our last game, there were almost more injuries than able-bodied players, but everyone had a smile on their faces, plenty of snacks and an awesome day as a result of putting in everything we had.

Mudgee, on the other hand, was a whopping 4 hour drive away, so we headed up Friday night for the Saturday comp. Like all good car trips, there was plenty of loud music, fast food and attempts at navigation for whoever called shotgun. Another great comp, and as the day went on every game we showed more and more confidence and teamwork. Our last match against West Harbour, the top team in our pool, we gave them a run for their money, and played one of our best games all year.

We joined with players from Macquarie University for both competitions, whose players give a whole other edge to our game. It has been absolutely great getting to know more players from different teams over the year, and we will be seeing a couple of them with us again as we head into the Blue Mountains 7s on December 9 this year, our last competition for 2017 which we are training hard to make our best one yet.

Get down to Lapstone Oval on December 9th to support our women as they have their final run out of the year. Stay tuned to the UNSW Rugby Facebook and Website for details regarding the draw as they become available.
