I still remember the moment I decided I wanted to play rugby. It was October, 2007, the night of the Rugby World Cup Final. England were playing South Africa and I was enthralled with the action on screen; the searing pace, the hard hits and the electric atmosphere made for an amazing first experience with a sport I have had the pleasure of playing for 11 years since.
But, for many, getting into an entirely new sport isn’t always easy, especially at University where suddenly you are a lot more dependent on yourself to make changes in life. So, for those who want to meet friends, get a little healthier or simply have fun here are some tips for getting into sport.
