It was great to catch up with Vicky Macqueen, former England player, Level 4 Coach and CEO of Didi Rugby. Vicky has just been appointed as the new Head Coach of the Leicester Tigers Women's Rugby Programme and kindly took time off her busy schedule and family holiday to chat about her playing and coaching journeys, and her ambitions for women's rugby at Leicester Tigers. Vicky and her generation of players were trailblazers for the women's game and it was insightful to listen to her experiences as an international player in the early days of women's rugby. Vicky talks about how she started playing rugby, the people and coaches who influenced her, the thrill of running out at Twickenham but also the disappointment of being dropped, transitioning into coaching and building a successful coaching team.
