Penryn props Mia Abbot-Smith and Chelsea Mitchell were scouted by England Rugby during their Cornwall under 18 girls' match versus Somerset played at Camborne's Recreation Ground in November.

They have been invited to attend the U18 Centre of Excellence (CoE) Assessment Day at Bristol Ladies CoE.

Nathan Brown, girls' section coach at Penryn said: "The girls are committed to training, attend all games and pitch up. They have worked hard on some simple techniques and focused on areas to improve their game. They are great girls and very good rugby players, so deserve the opportunity.

"This just reflects on the culture and attitude we are trying to foster in the Penryn Girls Section as we build and lay the foundations for success in the future.

"We are very proud of Chelsea and Mia and wish them luck, go for it and enjoy yourselves!"

It is a fantastic opportunity for the girls and to have been noticed in a game of that quality is well deserved.
