“A huge challenge ahead...”
Media & PR Dept
On Saturday 20th January 2018, England Deaf Women's Development are hosted by Portsmouth Rugby Club to play their Ladies Team, known as Portsmouth Valkyries.
Kick Off is at 2pm, and the game will be Live Streamed from around 1.45pm.
England Deaf Rugby is pleased to announce that England Deaf Women's Development Squad will be playing its first demanding game of 2018, against Portsmouth Valkyries who are following a successful 2016/17 Season, with promotion to Women's National Challenge (NC) South East-West 1 for 2017/18.
The Valkyries have so far played 8 league fixtures at this higher level, winning 6, drawing 1, and losing 1, placing them as League Leaders at the top of NC South East West 1, which is Level 4 in the English Women's game.
Our fans will remember that the England Squad played against a level 4 ladies side last year, Rugby Lionesses, who play NC Midlands 1, and that was a high scoring, fast, and entertaining game from both sides, with England running out eventual winners 36-20, in a game that could have gone either way.
We're planning to bring you the game live from the side of the pitch, from 1.45pm, with highlights posted on the England Deaf YouTube Channel later on. Fingers crossed on the weather this time, so we can watch our ladies in action!!!
