GB Hockey does NFL

GB at NFL

This past weekend over 83,000 American Football fans descended on Wembley Stadium to witness the Jacksonville Jaguars defeat the Indianapolis Colts 30-27. Amongst the massive crowd were some of the Great Britain Women's Hockey Team.

With the glory of their gold medal at the Rio Olympics still gripping the nation a handful of the Great Britain squad took the opportunity to take in the game before being presented to the crowd with a lap of honour during the interval. The ovation they received was deafening, showing that even the British fans of gridiron recognise the nerves of steel and the hard as nails qualities of the GB golden girls.  

All of them looked the part showing their colours with a variety of NFL jerseys. Georgie Twigg and Laura Unsworth were interviewed on the BBC whilst Sam Quek, a massive fan of NFL, dazzled the BBC experts with her insight and knowledge showing hockey is most definitely not her only area of expertise!

You can see Georgie and Laura's interview by skipping to 1 hour 25 minutes on iPlayer whilst Sam's expert insight is from around 2 hours 27. Well worth a watch whether you follow American Football or not!
