Can Rugby Inspire Poetry?

I’ve played rugby for years and I’ve written poetry for years. These are two passions that I have always kept separate – until now.

This March, my latest chapbook, Egg Shaped Ball, will be released. A loving tribute to rugby and the women who play it, this text is the happy coupling of two worlds.

Poets and ruggers are both invited to partake in this little collection. If you don’t know about rugby, the poems will teach you. If you know nothing about poetry, the rambunctious text will invigorate you to dive into some rucks.

I hope you all enjoy this little tease of a sample poem.
