Rugby Sevens team’s two new girls have received a boost from Philippa Tuttiett who is a former Wales rugby international player.
Both the girls are from Milford Haven School and are excellent players of the rugby game.
Recently, at school Philippa delivered a session of rugby to pupils in years 7 to 11. The move was the part of the project Sky Sports ‘Living for Sport’.
