Valkyrie sign France international Pommier

York Valkyrie are delighted to announce the signing of France international Mahault Pommier, thanks to the support of Squadbuilder!

19-year-old Pommier is formerly of French club AJ Ayguesvives XIII and featured three times for her nation's senior team last year.

The hooker and half-back scored 18 goals on her France debut in a 116-0 rout of Serbia before earning another start in the 64-0 defeat to England.

Pommier also featured for France in their 14-4 victory over Wales, scoring one goal.

On joining the Club, Pommier said: "I made my debut for France last year and I decided that I wanted to step up my game and so I wanted to move abroad.

"I spoke to a few players in the France squad that have played abroad and I decided that moving to York was a great idea for me and for my career.

"Since my first training session, the girls have been great with me and they are truly amazing as is Lindsay.

"I want to get better technically and coming over to England will be a great challenge because you have to communicate and talk a lot on the pitch and to do that in England will be a big challenge.

"I just hope that my game and I know that it will and I'm looking forward to that."

York Valkyrie Director of Rugby Lindsay Anfield, who is proudly sponsored by Acomb Travel, said: "I'm delighted to bring in Mahault for the remainder of the season.

"Mahault is a natural rugby league player who can kick and is good with the ball in her hands and she's a good athlete too, so we're looking forward to seeing her in a Valkyrie shirt.

"Arriving here on a permanent basis means we can get some consistency into her training and get her up to speed with our calls and our plays here at York.

"She's fitting in with the girls really well and it's great to have added another quality player to our squad."
