The Lioness Story
It was the summer of 2017 when a women’s touch rugby team was established. Quickly the touch team started to develop into full contact with new skills being learnt weekly and existing ones being refined. January 2018 saw the ladies host their first inner warrior event which had a fantastic turn out with numbers.
The success of the inner warrior event saw a rise in the team’s numbers as many people caught the rugby bug!
In September 2018 the Lionesses entered into a league for the first time, NC3 South East. After an opening day loss, the Ladies went unbeaten for the rest of the season and won the league! A huge achievement in our first season.
The 2019-2020 season saw us promoted to NC2 which was a real step up and challenge. The Ladies finished a very respectable 3rd in the League as well as having a good national cup campaign. Numbers continued to grow throughout this season and we were fortunate enough to have enough new players to have some development fixtures. Something we very much look forward to continuing.
After missing out on the 2020/2021 season due to Covid-19, the Westcliff Lionesses are looking forward to some friendlies, before pushing on and competing in NC2 South East (East) in the 2021/2022 season.
We now have over 40 Ladies regularly attending training and with the fantastic facilities at Westcliff RFC as well as the One Club ethos. We would love for you to “Join The Pride” and be part of the Westcliff Rugby Family.
