Congratulations to Emma (Year 11), who recently became a National U18 Touch Rugby champion.

Emma plays her club rugby at one of our local club links, Battersea Ironsides on Sunday mornings and started Touch Rugby two years ago. Her local team, the Wolves, train on Wandsworth Common in the summer and Tooting Athletic Track in the winter on Friday nights. In 2021 she was selected to play in the English National Touch Rugby U18 Tournament for the south-east regional team, which went on to win the tournament. Touch rugby is a mixed-gender sport, so Emma is playing with, and competing against boys several years older than her. She is now hoping to be selected for the national side.

Emanuel School Rugby are incredibly proud of Emma’s achievements, and we are excited to see where Touch Rugby takes her.

Mr Gaynor (Director of Rugby)
