Pressure is mounting on Hawke's Bay schools to let an 11-year-old girl play in her school's 1st XV rugby team.

Five principals from the district aren't letting Briar Hales, from Havelock North Intermediate, play for the 1st XV at an annual 'Super Six' school tournament, instead being told she could only play in the girl's sevens team.

The story has grabbed nationwide attention, and even the Government has weighed in; Sports Minister Grant Robertson saying she should be allowed to play.

In our poll today we're asking: Do you think girls should be allowed to play in boys' sports teams?
