Clancy’s weekend to remember


Sophie Clancy had a 24-hour period like no other last weekend.

The talented Singleton teenager guided the Hunter Wildfires to a Jack Scott Cup Division 2 title on Saturday when setting up an early try in the 29-25 victory.

She would combine with Anika Butler for the sealer in what proved to be a historic day for women’s rugby in the Hunter Valley.

Clancy then joined her Wallsend Wolves Open Women’s teammates and took out the NSW Country Championships Open Women’s Division Final on Sunday.

She played alongside Upper Hunter quintet Jules Kirkpatrick (Singleton), Evie and Matilda Jones (Muswellbrook) as well as Tyler Brown and Heidi Richards (Scone).

Matilda Jones was named as the player of the final.
