When I heard about rugby sevens after moving to Dubai in 2016 I naively thought that it was women's rugby and there's half of the amount of players on the pitch-this will be tame. But after broken ribs, ruptured tendons and countless amounts of bruises (and hangovers) I have realised just how wrong I was. Have I left? NO! I'm more hooked than ever! Being part of the lady canes family has literally changed my life and despite the agonizing pain (at times), we still continue to put our bodies on the line for one another and love every single second. I cannot wait to kick off my third season with this group of super women. #WDYP4
