The Strongest, Most Spirited Rugby Player In Rugby World Cup 2015
Meet Lindsay Hamilton. She was born almost limbless, but that doesn’t stop her playing rugby. Watch Lindsay playing rugby. She is an absolute inspiration and a real heroine of sport. Lindsay is almost limbless yet she plays scrum-half for Halifax Towers RFC women’s rugby team in Canada. It is full on. In the whole of Rugby World Cup 2015 you won’t find as great a hero (or heroine) as Lindsay. So, any moaners, whingers, divers and groaners playing other sports, watch this wonderful young lady play the game she loves. Lindsay inspires all rugby players and fans to appreciate the sheer joy and thrill of playing rugby. This heroic women’s rugby player inspires all Rugby World Cup players, and in fact any sports person worldwide.

So sit back and enjoy this Rugby World Cup. Our Fijian brothers kick it all off with the opening game between these warriors and the hosts, England. Let the fun begin. Let the battles begin.
Let the friendships begin. This is the brotherhood of rugby, which is part of the brotherhood of sport.
Let the rugby begin.
So amidst the fun and excitement, thrill and spills, highs and lows of this wonderful Rugby World Cup 2015, remember those of us who play week in, week out, those characters that make rugby unique.

Give any sport a go. Enjoy the buzz, like Lindsay, her team Halifax Towers RFC, or her national Canadian team, or the Irish team (whom they meet in their first RWC2015 Group D match) or the ABs or England or Fiji (who meet in the opening match) or any team participating in RWC2015.
