Meet Fortunate - International Women's Day 2023

This #internationalwomensday York RLFC would like to recognise our friends - The Whales Rugby League team in Uganda.

Meet Fortunate...Director of Rugby League in Uganda.

Assisted by York RLFC Valkyrie's Lindsay Anfield, Fortunate is leading the development of the Women's game in Uganda.

For many young girls in Uganda, rugby league can offer a safety-net to escape the harsh realities of child marriage and can leave girls feeling empowered to stand-up for themselves on and off the pitch.
