GORDON RUGBY WOMEN’S PROGRAM
In 2017, UTS Sport and Gordon Rugby extended their partnership to form the inaugural women’s rugby sevens Academy. The Academy expanded from the humble beginnings of a dozen athletes to currently around 50 squad members who participate in the free training program ahead of the proposed women’s sevens Shute Shield Competition in 2018, we are pleased to continue this program due to its huge success in 2018 to entering a 15s women’s side in the Jack Scott Cup competition in 2019.
In 2021 our Women’s XV program arrived officially on the scene. Once considered Easybeats, the XV’s under the guidance of Wallaroos Captain Ash Hewson and forwards powerhouse Evelyn Horomia the women were five wins from 9 games and in the third position.
With Ash returning in 2022 to captain/coach the side, there is no stopping this team from pursuing the Jack Scott Cup.
Our Sevens program continues to grow, with Gordon having two sides in 2021 and leading the competition in Division Two.
With the women’s game officially part of the participation agreement in 2023, it will continue to gain the momentum and exposure it deserves.
