Some people are destined to be involved in rugby from a young age, and this can certainly be said of this week's Tuesday Talent Laura-Alice Smith. Laura-Alice has been involved in rugby from a very young age, representing Worcester Warriors at Junior age grade & was in the process of selection for the U15s England Development squad when a severe ankle injury prevented her from taking her career at the top level any further.
But this is what makes Laura-Alice so special, in that she did not let this injury get her down but instead turned it into an advantage by getting involved in coaching, which allowed her to stay connected to the sport she loved so dearly. Since then her coaching career has continued to develop, with a coaching experience at Twickenham Lions, whilst she was a student at St Mary's University and now has set her sights on getting more girls involved in rugby and helping develop young people using the ethics & values rugby holds.
This is only a glimpse into the special talent that Laura-Alice has for coaching and we conducted a full interview with her to understand what exactly motivates her whilst coaching and how she is always planning to improve.
