For Eugene Murphy, volunteering is a labour of love. Throughout his time serving as Girls 7's Coordinator and Assistant Coach at Wests Junior Rugby Union in NSW, it’s fair to say that Eugene has made a significant impact on the club.
With two rugby-playing daughters in the family, Eugene devotes most of his weekends and week days to the game. A passionate rugby player from a young age, Eugene hung up his boots after becoming a father, but has since made it his ‘duty’ to ensure the game can be played and enjoyed by all.
