The women's rugby Gaels started the season off the way we planned through using an attacking defense to kick start our attack. This turned out to be a 24-0 win to start off the season which earns us a bonus point (for scoring four tries) plus the four points for a win.
Excellent team play from all aspects - the forwards running the team attack well, the backs having no handling errors, and the team truly being dedicated to the performance goals of the game - allowed us to perform at our best.
Next week, we have our home opener against York University which kicks off at 1pm at Kingston Field. We've been told that CBC will be filming and broadcasting parts of our team preparation and game as part of their 'Sports Day in Canada' and as a preview to the Queen's vs McGill women's basketball game at 4pm. We can't wait for exposure on a national scale on our beautiful home field - it's the most picturesque field in the OUA.
All the best,
