The youngster not only got an invite to attend Harlequins’ clash against Wasps but also retrieved the match ball and placed it on the podium pre-match.
Poppy, whose been at Worthing Rugby Club for three years and is a key player for the under-18s, won the chance after she claimed October's coveted DHL moment of the month prize for an amazing try scored in a match against Trojans.
Her mother sent a video of her try in to be judged and it was selected as one of three to be shown in the #biggame11 - Harlequins against Wasps.
After going out in front of 80,000 people, the 15-year-old said: “At first it was petrifying but I actually really enjoyed it. It was fun.”
Poppy plays alongside six other Durrington High students at Worthing. They train every Tuesday (6:30pm-8pm) and Sunday (10:30 am -12pm). Sessions are open to girls aged 10-18. Contact Nigel Dewey (chairman) on [email protected] or via Twitter @WRFC_girls
