This year marks a significant step up in TS5C sponsored Jessica's rugby career as, at just 15 years of age, she moves into the u18 age group.
So far this season Jess has secured her place in the Somerset u18 team and has played in the first match against Gloucestershire which Somerset won 59-17. A great team performance by all the girls who played the match at Frome RFC, with Jess contributing one of the tries. Two more county games between now and Christmas will see the Somerset girls take on Dorset and Wiltshire on November 20th and Devon on December 4th.
Jess continues to attend the England Talent Development Group every month and her club rugby at Winscombe every week.
Here are a couple of pictures of Jess from the Somerset v Gloucestershire game. Somerset are wearing their change shirts as the Gloucestershire strip is so similar in colour to our Somerset colours.
