Last week on International Women’s Day, Shona Powell-Hughes-Wakley, Nicola Davies, Karen Mayze and Nina Bishop, all members of Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service headed to Nottingham to take part in the ladies first GB Women’s Fire Service Rugby match against the British Police.
GB Women’s Fire Service Rugby team were leading the game right up until the last minute, but the British Police scored the winning try in the last minutes, making the final score 8–7. It was a fantastic effort by everyone involved and a great atmosphere.
