Level 3 Extended Diploma in Sport Rugby Education Pathway

My whole life is rugby. I study it at college, play for the Telford Hornets and do it as enrichment. On the girls' rugby team, we're at various levels, so it's about helping each other out and getting to the best level we can as a team. I want to go to uni, but I'll be in a rugby team while I'm there.

I think doing sports enrichment is a lot of fun. I usually play football for Shrewsbury Town FC, but at college, you can play matches with slightly less pressure. That's what I really enjoy: the fun, more relaxed aspect of it all.
