Stephen Hackett (27)
I joined the Warriors in July 2015 after a surprisingly very enjoyable open training day. I never had any ambition to play rugby. I only watched the sport when the big games were on and found it all too confusing to follow or enjoy properly. Growing up in a soccer household didn’t help either.
I was moving to Dublin from Wicklow to live and needed to expand my social circle. I ended up choosing rugby on the advice of a friend and fellow Warrior. Since joining I’ve discovered how much I enjoyed the game, the team aspect, my fitness has increased and my confidence has grown and grown
. I now know I’ve made friends for life from the club and have a new love for Rugby.
