Sizzling Sevens - 0 to 700 girls rugby participants in 3 years

Rio, 2016, and a Gold Medal to our famous Girls Sevens team, changed the trajectory of womens rugby and sport for womens in general.

Fast forward three years and I hardly think anyone in the rugby community would believe that a Saturday night tournament could have attracted 700 female participants and was on track for continued growth in 2020.

We speak to Michelle Nisbet, herself a early pioneer of the womens game and previously the SJRU Girls Rugby director about this amazing storey of growth and fun, and what rugby is capable of when everyone works together for a common goal. 

Whether you are a player, parent of just love a good storey in the current climate, this episode is a testament to the power and potential of the women's game.
