Words from Amy..
I am so excited to share the news with you that I have had an International call up for the Women’s Ireland Rugby League Squad! For those of you that may not know, rugby has been a HUGE part of my life since I was 12. It has been an outlet for me and a big reason why I managed to get through many of life’s challenges! I have had my head down and focused over the last few years to really try and make something of my passion and I have taken every opportunity I could!
I had a trial on the 5th February for the Ireland squad where we had to do some pretty extreme fitness testing, lets just say I was glad when it was over! I then received my results back and some analysis followed by an invitation to join the team! Our first game is scheduled for June against England which gives me plenty of time to get ready and recover from my fractured feet! (Yes I fractured both my feet the day after the trial!)
I’d love to catch up with you and answer any questions about women’s rugby and the game! I will also share the link to my games for anyone who would like to watch.
