Give It A Try
1st August 2013 By Munster Rugby
The Irish Rugby Football Union and Grand Slam winning Captain Fiona Coghlan today encouraged women and girls who are interested in fitness to take up rugby as they launch a nationwide recruitment drive asking them to "Give it a try".
This campaign, which highlights the many benefits of rugby, including fun, fitness and friendship, will see clubs nationwide host open days during August and September.
Speaking on behalf of women’s rugby Ireland Captain Fiona Coghlan said “I have played rugby for over 12 years and it has given me opportunities that I never dreamt possible. I am delighted that our Grand Slam success has encouraged more girls to get involved.
Rugby is a fantastic, inclusive sport where there is a role and position for everyone. Being a member of a club allows people to be involved in a fun, friendly environment that guarantees fitness and camaraderie. It also offers opportunities to represent your club, province and country.
I urge anyone with an interest in getting fit and making friends to Give It A Try!"
Please see below the Munster Clubs that will be hosting the campaign and welcome girls at all ages to come along and join in on the fun. For further information on club open days, including dates and times please visit http://www.irishrugby.ie/women/give_it_a_try.php or #giveitatry on twitter
