Elli Norkett 'a talented athlete with long career in front of her'

A university rugby team has played a match in memory of a player who died in a crash last Saturday.

Wales international Elli Norkett, 20, was involved in a two-car collision between Banwen and Glynneath.

She was in the final year of a sport development degree course at Cardiff Metropolitan University.

Prof Richard Tong, the dean of the university's Cardiff School of Sport, said she was "a very talented athlete" who "had a long career in front of her".
