The girls get silver

This weekend at the Women’s Cup in Paris, Jen and Gemma would be playing in the Gymnase Emile Anthoine , just a stone’s throw from the splendid Eiffel Tower. Playing as part of team Euro they would be taking on three other teams from a pool of six, made up from the best female talent from all round the world. Playing USA early on the Saturday they won 37-20 before taking on the hosts later that day whom they also beat 32-25. Having secured two wonderful victories team Euro would be up against a talented and experienced team Asia Oceanic on the Sunday. It turned out to be a tough encounter for our girls as they took on the team made up of players from Japan, Korea and New Zealand, they eventually lost 50-17 but they gave everything and never gave up. Presented with their medals by the French internationalist Ryadh Sallem, they did their country proud, the Crushers proud and themselves proud!
