As we get closer and closer to the Rugby World Cup, the Sheffield Vulcans turned to one of our own to share their views on what could happen in the upcoming tournament. Winner of Vulcan of the Year 2018/2019, Daniel Giles, give us his predictions on each team and how they’ll perform in Japan. DISCLAIMER – He is Welsh 😉
Captain, Innes MacLeod gives an insight into what he wants the club to achieve in our upcoming season.
As the Vulcans second birthday approaches so does the anniversary of my first trip to Endcliffe Park for a training session with the club. If you went back in time and told me that in a year I would be heading into the next season as captain I would have been, to say the least, surprised. It’s been an amazing year with training sessions that built confidence, socials that brought new friends and games that reminded everyone involved why we love this game. So the feeling I have looking forward is not surprise but excitement for what promises to be this young clubs best season yet.
Compared to years past, recent media has shown a rise in positive representation, not only for LGBT community, but women, and people of colour. No longer are we left with only small cult films and literature about “bohemian” lifestyles, but in all mainstream media from books and comics to Hollywood films, people are seeing people like themselves telling and starring in stories. To wrap up LGBT History Month, Vulcans Captain Michael Hudson shares his top choices for LGBT representation.
To celebrate Valentine’s Day, we wanted to share the stories of 5 Sheffield Vulcans and why they LOVE being part of our club; How they came to join Sheffield’s inclusive Rugby team and why they enjoy coming to training, playing in matches and joining in on socials.
