Rugby Tens

Vera Simões

It was not long ago that this player fought Ciska De Grave of Wales for the ball during the match between Portugal and Wales in the Women Rugby Europe Sevens Championship Series in Alges, Lisbon, Portugal. We Introduce to you the Portuguese rugby player, Vera Simões.

She started her rugby career 12 years ago and what an impressive 12 years it has been for this Sevens and Fifteens Super Star.

In these 12 years, Vera has represented the AEES Agrária de Coimbra, where eight of those years, she has been honoured to lead her team as The Captain. Now if that is not impressive, then we don’t know what is. Captain Vera with her years of leadership and fierce rugby experience does not only represent her country as just a 7’s National Player but also a 15’s National Player.

Now adding to her already impressive resume, as she will join the launch of the Rugby Tens Championship by combining her years of 7’s and 15’s experience to play the game of 10’s!

We are honoured to have this talented, hardworking and driven, Rugby Player/ Personal Trainer / Fitness Instructor at our R10C Tournament in just a few weeks!
