Speaking on Adams and Masuku’s achievement, Director of Rugby at the Titans Women’s Rugby Academy, Aschin Klein says: “We are excited for them and wish them well. It is always nice to see players excel in the game and breaking barriers and glass ceiling showing the girl child what is possible when you work hard, fight through setback and never give up.”
