Abstract: Women’s participation in sports has often been criticized based on issues pertaining towards their ability, societal norms, and gender differences. Rugby, a male dominated sport has always discouraged the involvement of women into the sport. Despite the challenges faced by these rugby players, women’s rugby has been growing rapidly on the international platform. Many researchers have examined the reasons and experiences of elite women rugby players, yet few investigated the development of women rugby players within schools. This study aims to explore women rugby players’ development through their motivation, perception and challenges about playing rugby in schools.
