Macclesfield Ladies 17-52 Sheffield Ladies

On Saturday 1st December Macclesfield RUFC was proud to launch our Women’s Rugby team.  After just 12 months from inception the women hosted Sheffield University in a friendly development league game.  For many of the Macclesfield Women’s team this was their first competitive game, and after a shaky 15 minutes (conceding 4 tries) they found their spirit and held Sheffield in their half of the field, denying possession for the next 30 minutes and scoring three hard worked tries and converting one on a windy day.
The game finished with the scoreboard in Sheffield’s favour (Macclesfield 17-52 Sheffield), however the day was not about the score.  The day was about launching a brand new 1st XV at Macclesfield RUFC, and allowing both sides’ players to gain match experience in a competitive environment.
If you’re interested in joining the Ladies Macclesfield Rugby team we would love to hear from you!
