I really enjoy being part of The42 membership. The rugby WhatsApp group is one of the most interesting groups I am in, full of amazing content, fantastic insights and great fun amongst the members. In a time of pandemic when the country has been mostly shut down, it has been a warm welcome to my life and I can’t wait for the first Rugby Weekly Meet Up when we return to normal.
