“The goal is not to be better than the other woman, but to be better than your previous self.”
The mentality of improving every time you step on the pitch or show up to the triangle for practice is a constant theme with AUWRFC this season. As a largely young team with most players having less than a year of experience, we are constantly learning and growing as a team. Last weeks game against Navy was a great start to that growth.
Many of our players were in new positions, with forwards switching into the back line and backs debuting with the forward pack. Despite the heat, everyone stepped out onto the pitch and gave it their all-tackling hard, scrumming low, passing accurately, and keeping up the intensity. Although we did not finish with the outcome we had hoped, we all walked away a better rugger than when they stepped out onto the pitch and are looking forward to taking all we have learned into our game against VCU this weekend.
