Simon Grogan, MD at S A Partners, has put his lot in with rugby, and has decided to sponsor the the junior team at Crumlin RFC by donating his portion of S A Partners charity fund to help the lads for the remainder of the season.
Simon, himself a former front row forward who has played against many international players in his prime, said supporting junior rugby helps instill not only teamwork and disciplin, but provide huge health benefits.
The Atlas foundation described the benefits of playing rugby as:
- Builds strength: Rugby is a great sport for boosting upper body strength, with strong arms needed for tackling and throwing, and muscular strength required for this contact sport. It develops the leg muscles because running and battling in scrums need powerful leg muscles.
