Historic Win

Former Fairholme athletes, Emilee Cherry, Gemma Etheridge, Dom du Toit and Demi Hayes have helped Australia claim victory in the World Rugby Women’s World Series.

Emilee Cherry scored two tries as Australia thrashed Spain 36 - 0, in the quarter final to take out Australia’s first Rugby Sevens World Series.

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull even sent them a message of congratulations.

Coach, Tim Walsh says it’s great preparation for the Olympics in Rio – which is just 68 days away. “Rio is going to be a one-off tournament and we have to do everything we can to prepare.”

The team of twelve players to make up the Olympic team, is expected to be announced early July.
