So that is the first week of Rugby Cubz done and dusted! And I have to say I am absolutely blown away by the response and the feedback from parents after the classes. There is nothing better than seeing children, especially those who for whatever reason have not had the chance of such activity before, running about with a rugby ball in their hands and a big smile!

It was really heartening receiving calls from people offering their support also, from the Southern Trust to respected Ulster Rugby contacts, all saying that this is much needed, and I could be very busy in the coming months! I hope so, for this is my passion, I feel very strongly that ASD children should have access to rugby. Also, it was brilliant to see their mummy’s, daddy’s, brothers, and sisters joining in as well. That is what it is all about for me, anyone can play.
