“Rugby Union has provide me an amazing opporutnity to play in a 15s Rugby World Cup, but also provided me a chance to develop new friendships at my club team. I only started playing rugby after a career in Atheltics, and Rugby is very now very much part of my life. With so many opporutnities for young girls to play Rugby now, the strength of  Womens Rugby in NSW will only get stronger and see many stars of the future playing at future World Cups”

“Rugby 7s has changed my life! After joining the sport after having played many sports growing up, I have travelled the world with the Australian Women’s 7s team and been fortunate to make so many friends and most importantly enjoy every moment being invovled in Rugby 7s. The fast paced action of 7s Rugby is most exciting thing for me however win, lose or draw the fun I have with my teammates on and off the field is the most rewarding”
