Women’s rugby

In September 2016 several female students and spouses wanted to establish a team sport for women at Trinity. In conversation with Trinity tutor Rev Dr Howard Worsley, rugby was chosen and the Trinity Wolves were born! What started as several women practising weekly on the front lawn of college has grown over the last two years to form a full 15-a-side squad made up of ordinands, independent students, and spouses with players on the side aged between 19 and 40-something! The vision of the Wolves, in addition to women learning new skills, keeping fit, and bonding as a team, is one of outreach and to encourage spiritual formation. ‘Life at Trinity is holistic–training the body, mind, and soul–so it is a fitting and exciting beginning to integrate women’s sport into the rhythms here,’ says ordinand Thea Smith. The team trains each week and has had fixtures with local university sides and rugby clubs, aiming to play roughly one match a month during the season. In addition, players are invited to consider rugby coaching and the opportunity for mission in roles such as sports chaplaincy.
