Rookie Rugby

The brainchild of Women's Team Member Bree Walas. She first introduced Rookie Rugby as a way to introduce boys and girls between the ages of 3 and 10 to the game of Rugby. From humble beginnings, with just several participants, to a count of around 20 at the last session. Bree tries to host the Rookie Rugby before scheduled home matches. Is it working? Look at the smiles on the  youngster's faces.
