It is already January and our season is almost over. I love playing rugby and when our season is over I result to having to WATCH rugby on our television. Just sitting there while I itch and itch and itch eager to start our next season. A part of me hates watching sports on T.V. because it just motivates me to get up, pick up a ball and play.
I am generally a centre [numero 12] when it comes to playing both 7s and 15s and I absolutely love it. I used to be a winger during the first 3 years of playing rugby, but then our team grew and my coach made me a centre. A part of me is thankful that I do not have to run as much though. Lazy me x}. But I do a lot more bashing and handing off, and that sounds painful but it really is not. Instead of feeling pain I feel powerful. When I play I try to be as motivated as possible and in doing so I think of some of my rugby role models, Ma’a Nonu, Sonny Bill Williams and Dan Carter [all New Zealand All Black players yes] literally as I am on the pitch.
I am a very determined player and in proving so I stay an extra hour before and after training, just practising on my skills like kicking and passing. The more I practise the luckier I become. I have achieved so much from rugby, medals, trophies and good friends that have my back on and off the pitch.
Having passion in what I do makes me dream. Sometimes I really dream about being a professional rugby player. Now that would be the life, travelling around playing matches against other international players. I do not really have a specific team that I would love to play for just yet, but until then I will just keep training, work hard, play hard and keep my dream alive. RUGBY FTW! 😀and I [Centre] at Dubai Rugby 7evens 2011″]and I [Centre] at Dubai Rugby 7evens 2011″]
