The Australian women’s rugby team, the Wallaroos, head to Ireland in August to compete in the Women’s Rugby World Cup, which only comes around once every four years. Team member, Grace Hamilton, who also works and studies full time, writes for Mamamia about her journey and why rugby mates are mates for life.
If someone had told me when I was little that I would grow up to represent Australia playing full contact rugby, I would never have believed them in my wildest dreams. I would have informed this misinformed person that a) I don’t play rugby and b) no girls play rugby (duh!).
That said, in one month I’ll put my life on hold to jump on a plane to Ireland to play in the Women’s Rugby World Cup.
