Meet the Ambassadors


Rebecca Tavo is a dual-international, who has represented Australia in both touch-football and rugby sevens.

In 2009, Rebecca enjoyed the ultimate success in Dubai as part of the Australian side that won the inaugural Women’s Rugby World Cup Sevens.

In 2011, Rebecca tasted World Cup glory again, this time with the Aussie Women’s touch-football side, which claimed the world number one crown in Edinburgh.

Following her success in touch-football, Rebecca decided to switch her focus to rugby sevens and was named captain of the Australian side.

 

I have been fortunate to win two World Cups in two different sports and have the opportunity to travel around the world doing something I love, which is amazing. I was blown away when I was offered the rugby 7s captaincy, it is a huge honour and I’m very proud to be given the chance to lead my country."

Ed currently attends the Australian College of Physical Education (ACPE) in Sydney where he studies Sports Business.

Rugby Sevens is a fun and exciting game that has taken me around the world and helped me keep fit and healthy."
