Six Robins named for Yorkshire Girls’ Talent Hub

Six members of the Robins’ U15s and U16s Girls sides have been selected for the Yorkshire Girls’ Talent Hub, recognising the region’s standout talent in the girls’ game.

Budding back-rower Jess Sharp is included amongst the six having already featured for the Robins’ women’s first team throughout 2022. Hull KR Girls U16s’ players,  Amy Nolan, Ebony Oaten-Powdrill and Bethany Rushmer are joined by Girls’ U15s players, Aisla Merryweather, who has also been selected for Yorkshire’s Rugby Union junior representative side, and Katie Nozedar for the five-week program.

The Yorkshire’s Girls Talent Hub is the initial step to showcasing the brightest young talent across Yorkshire and Lancashire while highlighting potential future stars of the women’s game for England’s performance pathways.

The training will commence every Wednesday say for five weeks from 22 June and finish with Central Yorkshire facing off against West Yorkshire and North West at Wakefield’s Be Well Support Stadium on Tuesday 19th July for the program’s U16s and Wednesday 20th July for the U15s.

Fresh off the Hull KR Womens’ historic win over Hull FC in the first Women’s Hull Derby, Jess Sharp was delighted to be selected for the Yorkshire Girls’ Talent Hub: “I’m really happy to be picked for Yorkshire. I feel like I’ve been playing some good rugby lately, stepping up to the Women’s team has given me the platform to play at a higher level.”

In addition to her inclusion in Yorkshire’s Girl’s Talent Hub, Sharp praised the hard work of her fellow Robins chosen for Yorkshire: We’ve all been working so hard and it’s clearly paying off. It’s a fantastic opportunity to showcase the talent that they have on a bigger stage which may lead to more exciting opportunities.
