THURROCK rugby star, Emily Scott was denied an Olympic medal on Monday night after suffering defeat to Canada.
Although they had defeated Canada in the pool stages, the North Amercian team played with a new lease of life whist Great Britain looked like they had run out of gas.
Thurrock T-Bird Emily came on in the second half and produced her trademark tough tackles but by then the game had run away from Great Britain.
There were tears at full time but Emily and her team mates should be proud of themselves.
We do hope that Thurrock recognises her achievements when she returns.
