Top class physio heading to HK with Scottish side

Physio Fiona Rob will be working with the PROJECX Waterboys at the Hong Kong 10s next week.

The Waterboys team was initially started in 2012 with the aim of providing younger players, with a link to Scotland, the opportunity to visit the world’s largest tournaments.

The team this year is filled with talent from the BT Premiership  and beyond and the Waterboys are seeded eighth for the Hong Kong event which take place on April 5 and 6.

With a number of matches played over an intense two day period, the physios on site could be busy and Fiona is looking forward to the experience.

“This is my first event with the Waterboys, I’m looking forward to being a part of the team,” Fiona said.

“Having attended the event as a spectator a few years ago it’s very exciting to be closer to the touchline.

“I started working with Glasgow Hawks as a student and I’ve enjoyed the past two seasons with Stirling County.

“My interests in human movement and sport meant physio was the obvious choice for me. I’ve had so many brilliant experiences I haven’t looked back!”

The PROJECX Waterboys are in Pool A at the Hong Kong 10s with last year’s winners Penguins International, the Irish Vikings and the Devils Advocate Dragons.

Once again PROJECX, International Power and Water Investments, JA Resorts & Hotels, Ace Property Management, Sarcogent Solutions and Ethigen are supporting the team. They also have a range of new sponsors including Kyloe Restaurant (Signature Pubs), Orion Systems, St. Julians Advisory, 4 Navitas and Bureau.
