Scott Wight, head coach della Scotland Women 7s, ha annunciato i nomi delle giocatrici convocate per la prima tappa del Rugby Europe Women’s Sevens Trophy in programma ad Ostrava (Rep.Ceca) il prossimo fine settimana.

Le dodici ragazze, tra cui figura anche Elizabeth Musgrove, unica uncapped che ha lasciato l’atletica per passare al rugby in questa stagione – sono state inserite nella Pool C con Moldova, Israele e Germania.

Il gruppo scelto da Wight comprende giocatrici con esperienza nell’abbreviated game, come Abi Evans, Louise McMillan, Lisa Thomson, Helen Nelson e Chloe Rollie, assieme ragazze che – Lisa Martin, Megan Gaffney e Lauren Harris – sono impegnate con la rappresentativa sevens da quando è stata formata nel 2012 mentre Jenny Maxwell, che ha debuttato nel 2013, ha preso parte alle ultime due edizioni (2015 e 2016) del torneo organizzato da Rugby Europe.

The commitment from the players has been top notch. This is a really competitive group so for me to select 12 it’s been quite tough, but that’s what you want as a coach,” ha detto Wight al sito ufficiale della Scottish Rugby.

We’ve set high standards in the group and our aim is to finish in the top two overall and gain promotion to the Grand Prix. Our regular training sessions at Oriam over the past two months have been beneficial and we made real progress at our week-long camp ahead of a warm-up tournament in London last weekend, where we made it to the final.
The squad is really buzzing for Ostrava and I’m looking forward to seeing what they can do.
