Miley & Victoria Triumphant at Southern States Championships!

ERUFC couldn’t be prouder of Superstar Miley!

Here’s the wrap-up from Miley’s parents, Claire & Marika:

‘Thankyou so much to Eltham Rugby Club for all your support of Miley!  She has just gotten back from representing both Victoria and Eltham Rugby at the southern states champion ships.

Rebels have come away victorious in all age groups!

The Victorian under 14’s girls were undefeated over the two days winning:

    • 70-5 against Illawarra
    • 15-5 against Brumbies
    • 41-7 against ACT
    • 15-5 against Brumbies country in the finals

Miley has learnt and developed so much as a player over the last 8 weeks.  She has been encourage by both her Eltham team mates, coaches and families and her state team and coaches.  This experience has been such a positive one and was made possible by the support of her club Eltham.  She is looking forward to playing with her club this weekend!

We were reminded of her grade 6 graduation speech where she said she dreamed of being a professional rugby player one day, on the right track!

Girls rugby is alive and well in Victoria! Many thanks to clubs like Eltham that make a pathway, enable and encourage girls like Miley who just want to play rugby. Her love of the great game of rugby continues!’
