Current and former Hartpury students star for England Women Under-20s


Four current and former Hartpury students scored 35 of England Women’s Under-20s 38 points last night as they defeated the Army Women’s side.

A Level student Ella Wyras scored a brace while Zoe Aldcroft, Cat McNaney and Zoe Harrison – who also netted four conversions - adding one a piece to complete the 38-15 at the Aldershot Army Rugby Stadium.

As well as those scoring the points, Hartpury had ten players in the overall match day squad including Ellena Perry, anna Wolf, Brooke Bradley, Tazmin Bricknall, Mollie Morrisey and Rosanna Moynihan.

With eight of those featuring in the England starting 15 it was the Army who took the lead in the game through winger Jess McAuley-Roberts. England quickly responded through Aldcroft and then Harrison and McNaney’s scores put light between themselves and the home side.

England’s Barlett scored before Wywras’ second-half brace came sandwiched either side of another Army score from Dawson. The home side then registered their third try of the game to leave the full-time score at 38-15.

Wywras and co are now set to face France in back-to-back games, the first of which gets underway at Esher RFC next Saturday (25th February).
