I have been a part of Valley Fort Mini Rugby since 2017, when my son Oscar started in U6's. This season our family is all in for Valley Fort; Oscar in U9's, Ida in U7's, Nora in U5's and my wife Eden coaches U7’s. Saturday nights are definitely earlier during rugby season!! I am from Sydney originally but I have been in Hong Kong for a number of years. I grew up playing a variety of team and individual sports. It was also a time to witness some great Wallaby and Waratah wins...wish I could say the same for my kids! As U5's Head Coach, I want the boys and girls to have fun, have a go, and experience the thrill, excitement and cohesiveness that Valley Fort Rugby can offer. Go Valley!
