First Ever 'Caps' for Girls

AMANDA HUNTER FRIDAY 26 JUN 2015

For the first time in Rugby School’s history, girls who are captains of the major sports are to be awarded caps.  

Millie Richards, Captain of Hockey, and Kate Broad, Captain of Netball, have become the first girls to receive caps since the School was founded in 1567.  

Traditionally caps have been awarded to rugby football players who have played for the XV or who have their second XV colours. In the 40th year of girls at Rugby School, the policy has been adopted of awarding caps to the captains of the major sports.
