Women's sevens trials on the horizon


Brumbies Rugby invites any women or girls 16 years or over to an open selection trial and development session on Tuesday 20th November at Griffith Oval No. 2, in Griffith ACT, from 6-7pm.

We encourage all Women in the region who have an interest in rugby to attend, even if they have never played the game before. Experienced players and coaches will be on hand to run through a series of skills and drills and to outline the upcoming Women's Representative Program, which includes trips to Darwin, Kiama and Sydney. The program will then move into 15s later in the season.

7’s Rugby is a shortened version of Rugby, is extremely quick with a lot of action and has recently been included as an Olympic Sport for the 2016 Olympics. This is the pathway for women in the ACT and Southern New South Wales to make the Australian Olympic Team.
