Happy New Rugby Year 2013!

The women’s 15s NT is kicking off a new year of skills’ and game sense development, keyed at integrating new players to the squad through providing for training and friendly games both in Finland and abroad for a group of about 30 players.
The first game is in Edinburgh on the 23rd Feburary 2013 against the Scotland U20 and two other friendly games are planned for the 2013 season. No official competitions take place in 2013.
The next training sessions are: 18.1. (theory session in Pori, place to be confirmed), 26.1. (training day in Vantaa) and 16-17.2. camp in Eerikkilä. Please club coaches consider you are invited to join us during the training sessions and camps, coaching help is most welcome!
Below you can see the list of players selected for the 2013 squad. Due to some players not being available for the Scotland game, also Karoliina Levy and Anna Soiluva from WRC will take part in the Scotland trip.
During 2013, the team’s head coach is Tytti Yli-Viikari, team manager is Laura Laakso and assistant coach is Niina Tikkanen. Riko Oksanen is manager and Jani Parkkinen physio on specific occcasions.
