The TCS girls Rugby Team got an amazing opportunity to be trained by Aurélie Lemouzy Development Programmes Manager from World Rugby who is embarking on a new journey as Legacy Officer for the Olympics. They were also joined by Ireland’s very own Marie Louise Reilly aka “Maz” Reilly who has been playing in the second-row for Ireland for several years and competed in three Rugby World Cup Tournaments.
Maz and Aurélie mentored the students and shared their sporting expertise while also encouraging player development pathways. By day Maz works as a sports development officer with Dublin City Council and has offered the students future opportunities to develop their sporting interests.
The girls embraced the icy cold morning to put on an excellent performance and showcase their talents, skill and commitment to the sport.
Today was an excellent day to appreciate the opportunities for females in sport and highlight positive role models such as Maz and Aurélie.
