Big Cats welcome Rina Matsuo


This week the Big Cats are excited to welcome Rina Matsuo to Springvale who will be with us for the next 3 months.  Rina, a player from Reseisha College in Osaka, will be part of the women’s program at Springy, and is excited to play in another country, and also learn some English. Rina’s Head Coach in Osaka is Megumi Kitta, a past Big Cats Premiership player.

The Big Cats encourage cultural exchange and always enjoy having players from around the world join their program.  Rina becomes the  134th female player to take the field for our women’s program.
