Name: Danny Baker


When did you join #TeamRoundheads? 

I’m a founding member

Did you have any experience playing rugby before? And what attracted you to rugby? 

I played rugby league back in school, Rugby was always something I enjoyed playing. I was attracted to rugby as I love contact sports and it’s great to get down and dirty while having a laugh playing the game.

Why do you think there is a need for Inclusive Rugby?

There’s always a need to inclusive rugby! Its supportive and non-judgmental environment for its members, promoting equality and diversity, the removal of discrimination on the grounds of sexual orientation and  identification, and good health through physical activity. 

What have you enjoyed the most about being a Roundhead and what is your favourite memory so far?

I enjoy the most meeting up with my fellow players at training and having a laugh, coming together for social meeting. Favourite memory to date was Halloween 😂 what a scream we all had dressing up!

What does being part of the Roundheads mean to you?

As a founding member I’m glad it’s all coming together and the team is coming along just amazing!! We’re not just a team it’s a family!

Finally, to anyone reading this who is thinking of joining with experience or no experience playing rugby, but who haven’t yet decided to #ruckwithus, what would you say to them?

Come along and see that we’re all a great bunch of guys who always get along. Enjoy the sport and have fun which is the main!
