Sure, my clothing is covered in goose poo and we had to play on frosty fields, and sure, I got stepped on by metal cleats and got kicked in the face a few times, but it was great. My team is amazing and rugby is just such a fun sport - I scored three tries and made some beautiful, hard tackles that left other girls winded and hurt. We had eight girls (one got a concussion so we didn't have any subs for the rest of the tournament). We did some fun live streams in the other girls' hotel rooms.All in all, a fun experience. I got to be co-captain a few times and I improved a ton since last year, which was my first year of this sport.
So, yeah. Hopefully, if I practice enough (I'll be playing year-round from here on out, I think) I might be able to get a scholarship. Hopefully.
I'm really glad I play rugby, honestly. Not a lot of people do, so I feel like it's my thing. When I make a mistake, I'm not scoffed and belittled, which is a nice change. And I'm given so much room to improve. Sometimes I wish more people would play it - and other times I'm selfish and just want it to be my special thing. Girls don't play rugby - at least, in my school, they don't. So it's nice. Really nice.
