England & Newcastle Falcons
Electric speed. Incredible finishes. A regular at Newcastle Falcons, Adam Radwan was first offered a spot in the team after his incredible displays of pace in the Premiership 7s. Since helping Newcastle back to the top flight, he was called up by England in 2021. Clocked at an unreal maximum speed of 11.2 metres per second, you’d be lucky to catch him.
England & Harlequins
Defiant, determined and packed with potential. England and Harlequins rugby star Ellie Kildunne is working her way to the top. With roots in Rugby League from growing up in West Yorkshire, she’s now a regular in the starting line-up for the Red Roses and was part of the England squad that finished second in the Rugby World Cup in New Zealand 2022. Great things lie ahead.
England 7s & Exeter Chiefs
A powerhouse player that picked up a ball at aged 15 and never looked back. Now 23, she’s gained caps for Sale Sharks and most recently, Exeter Chiefs. She’s also the first deaf woman to represent an England senior team, having gained a spot for England Sevens in 2019. Despite bumps in the road, Jodie has mastered the game as well as being an idol for young deaf people. There’s nothing she can’t do..
Connacht & Ireland
A Canberra-born winger who’s laid his roots in Galway. Since making his debut for Connacht, he’s now nine tests into an international career that began in the 2022 Guinness Six Nations. He touched down an epic try which saw Ireland beat the Springboks in the recent Autumn Nations, so he’s a must-watch for the 2023 season.
Maeve Óg O’Leary
Munster & Ireland
A Tipperary native with a masters in PR, Maeve is one of the next big things in Irish Rugby. And possibly the most positive person in the game. Incredibly grateful for the path that has brought her here, the Munster back-row understands the pressure she faces as an Ireland international. “Anytime you get to pull on the green jersey, it’s a privilege. There’s a job to do and you’re not just representing yourself but your club, your team mates and the whole country.”
Former British & Irish Lions Captain
Two-time Lions captain, the youngest player to lead Wales into a Rugby World Cup match and, quite simply, one of the best players of all time. From early days at the Cardiff Blues Academy to becoming the only captain to twice take the Lions to victory, Sam reached heights no player had before. Since his retirement in 2018, Sam now runs the SW7 academy, bringing elite strength and conditioning training to the masses..
