Meet the Warriors – Pauric Cave

ewrfcadminMeet the Warriors

Why did you join?

I made it my new years resolution after listing to the Big Gay Bucket List, I was finding it really hard settling into life in Dublin. I just wanted an outlet and to make new friends.

What does being a Warrior mean to you?

It’s something to be really proud of, the club has achieved so much since it was established. The biggest achievement I feel is bringing a group of people, most of whom never played before and developing a passion for the sport.

What have you learned/gained since joining the Warriors?

I’ve learned a bit about rugby, and a lot about myself. I always felt uncomfortable in certain situations because I didn’t want to stand out for being feminine. Now that’s the thing that I probably love the most about myself, I may be more feminine than other players that doesn’t impact on my ability as a player – or anything in life anymore.

What has been your favourite moment/memory of being a Warrior?

There are too many: Hadrian, Union Cup, games in the metro league, a group of rugby players having a vogue-off in the G!

Any advice for aspiring Warriors?

Just do it. Give yourself a break, make a tonne of mistakes and learn from each one. Allow yourself time to fall in love with the game. The friends and the wins will all follow suit.
