Wednesday's Ruck & Maul
CW's Dynamic Duo
Coach Fiorino comments; “This team will be physically gifted with power and size with the likes of Crossley and de Goede….” and others, “as well as being gifted with great speed.” He continues; “The sevens program is entering the 2020 quad with a strong depth pool and we are already about 70 players deep with the majority of them being under the age of 21.”
Both of these ladies have great parental pedigree, Sophie, in particular, with parents being RC Women and Men Captains however it is the hard yards that they have put in that has earned them this honour. CW wishes the team well and we will follow your results with interest. You go, girls!
