Coming from a sport loving family, I've been bred to enjoy the exhilarating highs and lows that come with it, I started my sporting life from the age of five until I was eighteen as a competitive swimmer, a sport that brought me many successes.
However it was during my university life that I became intoxicated with the beautiful game of rugby. My full time job as a qualified pharmacist keeps me very busy during the week, but this doesn't stop me giving my full support to both Leinster and Irish rugby, usually spending my weekends at the Aviva and the RDS with my dad!
I decided in late 2011 to start a rugby blog called "OMG, What the Ruck?!" to show my passion and opinions for the sport and also to show that us women enjoy rugby for the technicalities of the game itself and not just the obvious reason!
When I'm not working or cheering on the boys in blue you can usually find me at my local gym as I love to keep fit, you can also follow me on Twitter at emma_jane27
