SISU September Player of the Month: Grace Young
Updated: Nov 7, 2019
She's come a long way from the fresh-faced rookie she was this past winter. Grace joined the team last season having never played rugby before. Yet, a little less than six months later, Grace's speed and drive have made her a crucial member of our forwards pack. She leaves it all on the field both at practice and in matches, and she's not afraid to help out or ask questions. What really puts Grace over the top is her commitment to showing all of the rookies the ropes of rugby and helping them develop the same love and appreciation we all have for the sport. We're so grateful for all that Grace puts in, and we're excited to learn more about her!
