Wallaby Wannabe?

WALLABY WANNABE? Vermont was the first stop on a three-week tour of the U.S. by the Australian Defence Force women’s rugby team. Comprising 24 Navy, Army, and Air Force officers in the Australian military, the squad participated in four days of joint practice sessions with the Cadets Women’s Rugby Team, culminating in an exhibition match attended by many in the Norwich community. Their stay was characterized by cultural exchanges, camaraderie, and mutual respect. The Aussies’ U.S. itinerary also included visits to West Point and Annapolis.
