England stars Jonny May and Rochelle Clark were special visitors to The Nest, home of the Hornets.

ENGLAND winger Jonny May and England women’s World Cup winner Rochelle Clark were special visitors to The Nest.

They were there to support Under-13s girls’ head coach Rhiannon Tottle deliver a session.

At the end of last season, QBE launched My Coach of the Year and player Sophie Reed nominated her. A few weeks later, Tottle heard the news that she had won and was only one of four coaches across the country to win this award.

Her prize was a level two coaching course and to deliver a session to the Hornettes Girls with an England legend supporting her.

Forty-five girls from Hornets and Yatton experienced a great coaching session, led by Tottle with May and Clark in support, which lasted for an hour when a hail storm brought it to a close.

A great evening was had by all the girls and coaches and one that the girls will cherish for a long time.

At the weekend, both Under-15s and 13s played at The Nest and were obviously inspired by the training session as they displayed some great rugby skills to win both their matches.

Any girls aged between 10-17 wishing to play rugby, please contact Hornettes Girls’ manager Jenny Cockayne on 077177 90838.
