Following a selection camp in Jönköping last weekend, the club is delighted to announce the selection of Sandra Olofsson to the U18s 7s squad that will take part in the European Championships to be held in Liege, Belgium next month.
Following Sweden’s appearance and hosting of the championship last year in Enköping, the union have continued with development of the U18 girls through the national talent development program, which features regional and national training days. Sandra has been consistent presence at these camps in the south as well on the training pitch in Lund and is being rightly rewarded for the time and effort she has put into her training with her selection.
The competition in Belgium will be tough as the team will take on some of Europe’s traditional women’s powerhouses in England, Ireland, Russia and Netherlands alongside a host of up and coming nations on the rugby scene. The full lineup can be seen on Rugby Europe’s webpage.
We wish Sandra and all the girls a big good luck in their endeavours next month and we will be sure to bring you as many updates as possible.
