The RFU-led campaign encouraging anyone who has played rugby before to put on the boots and jersey again was also used by Spalding to stage touch and mini rugby sessions for youngsters wanting to take up the sport.

Georgia Mae Bailey (17) said: “We had a brilliant team, split into A and B sides that each were a mixture of both experienced and new players.

“Our age range was from under-13 to under-18 and we played well in our teams, considering there were girls who had their first game.”
