How has rugby changed your life? Tell us a little about the impact it’s had for you, good and bad.

Rugby has brought me life long friends from all over the world and from all walks of life. Whether at university, where it provided me with a community where I finally found somewhere I felt like I fitted in and was accepted. Or in later life, where the various teams I have played for have become a home away from home and where I have made lifelong friendships. Rugby has also given me the opportunity to represent my country, Czechia, which as a kid is something I always dreamed of.
