Coaches, now is your chance to show your appreciation for that one kid who you were counting on to make your season.

"Kamil was the exceptional individual who thrived on bringing people together. He always had a smile. He was inclusive, positive, supportive and eager for the next adventure. His joy of life and his love for people made him an unforgettable person within our rugby community. His ability to make those around him laugh and smile will never be forgotten." - Dannish Patel
