Meet the Warriors – Stephen Hackett

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

Our first league game of the 2015-2016 season was never going to be easy. More than half of the players who stepped onto the pitch had only begun training a few months beforehand, some players had known the rules, others had never touched a rugby ball.
