Hello fellow Owen Farrell fan girls and welcome to Harper Adams Ladies Rugby team. A group of highly talented, extra ordinarily fit and lightning fast women with a passion for rugby.
Well that’s what we like to think we are!
Really we are all just a group of girls that are keen to get down and dirty on (and off) the pitch who love a good drink and who are trying to make the ladies rugby team a social that everyone wants to join and enjoy!
We welcome girls of all ability, from complete newbies to inspiring future England rugby captains and cater for all.
Training takes place twice a week and is a mixture of drills, games and strategy plans then most Wednesdays we have a match.
We have socials that take place on a Wednesday night which is an evening of super sophisticated chat about politics, feminism and ancient Greek art. All washed down with a lemonade, or if we are feeling naughty a J20 and some light snacks.
Come if you dare!
Everything is run by six of Harpers most prestige, A* students: Erin Turner, Robyn Hutchinson , Olivia Hodson, Katie Bailey, Becky Sharman and Matilda Heron and these girls run a very tight ship, well team!
The women's rugby social has gone from strength to strength with last year's execs managing to recruit 53 little freshers and this year we really hope to exceed that.
If you love to play with balls, can drink anything and everything, have good chat and are willing to get stuck in, then Harper Adams ladies rugby team is the place for you!
Welcome to our totally difunctional and mad family!
- Yours truly, Sexy Secretary 👄
‘Rugby is soooo much better than hockey’ Everyone, all the time. ❤️🏑 ❌ 🏉 ✅

The harper Adams women’s rugby team are proud to announce their second sponsor The Farm Consultancy Group, who have been supporting us since January by sponsoring our off field kit this year!

The Farm Consultancy Group are independent agricultural advisors and consultants who provide agriculture and business advice to farmers and land owners across England and Wales.

We would like to thank them massively for their contribution this year and hope we have been able to do them proud!

Unfortunately due to the coronavirus outbreak the team were unable to collect a team photo of us all in our kit, however the new captain for the 2020/21 academic year Erin Turner has kindly modelled some of the kit and the logo for us to display!

The women’s rugby team are hoping to be able to continue our charitable events safely and at home for the rest of our third term, we hope that all of our members and supporters are keeping safe and well! 🏉💙💛

The harper women’s rugby team look back on their game against AngliaRuskin on Wednesday, despite a loss it was great to get the ForFarmers UK kit muddy in the rain🏉

This game marked a final play on home pitches for some of our teams 3rd and 4th year players. On international women’s day, as a team we reflect on these players who we have had the pleasure to play alongside, as we remember that rugby is so much more than just a sport to us, but a family we have built💙💛. We look forward to our final game in a few weeks time!
