Girl power to the fore at summer camps
More than 60 boys took part in the final week of Bath Rugby's summer camps at Prior Park College – and two girls gave the sport a try as well.
Honor, who was sporting a mouthguard, said: "Sometimes we play tag in the playground but I don't like contact because I don't want to be hurt – it's a bit scary.
"Sometimes we have a group huddle but the boys are really sweaty!"
Sophie, who is also nine, added: "It's really good. I quite like to be with boys for a change because I am usually with girls.

"I like rugby but don't know if I will play when I am older, I play lots of other sports too."
The summer camps have been organised by John Harrison of Bath Rugby, who said they had been a big success.
"The children have all enjoyed fun-filled skills camps this summer and we are sure they will take these back to their schools and clubs for the coming season," he said.
"Although it is mainly boys, we are very happy for girls to take part. The club is already involved in girls' rugby development and so, for the two young girls taking part at Prior Park, it could be just the start."
