Wendy Young


This blog came about because I wanted to contribute to the sport that has given me so much. I started out reading as much on rugby as I could on Goffon Rugby, Planet Rugby and a few other blogs. I was always disappointed that there was very little to read about Women's Rugby. So I began this blog on March 31, 2006 and haven't stopped blogging since. I have enjoyed the friends, networking and adventures I have been on while doing it, and look forward to the next adventure on or off the pitch!

The us in the About Us is pretty simple...mainly it is Wendy Young, editor and creator of Your Scrumhalf Connection. Her partner, The Girl is a regular contributor of this blog even if she hasn't written a post. She is the constant inspiration and challenger of what this blog could be and will become.

As for me personally, I currently play scrumhalf for the Austin Valkyries in Austin, TX. I started playing rugby at the University of Oklahoma in 2001. I love everything about rugby and wanted to write about it...so this is my blog about rugby and some small parts of my life. I was recently selected for the USA Women's National Team pool and I was also recently certified as a rugby referee in the Texas Rugby Union.

Note: The blog originally began as West Rugby Blog (http://westrugby.blogspot.com), but has since evolved to Your Scrumhalf Connection (http://scrumhalfconnection.com) which focuses on women's rugby in the USA.
