Maggie May

Wake up Maggie I think I've got something to say to you...

HUGE congratulations to England Women's flanker Maggie Alphonsi who earlier this week was announced as the winner of the the prestigious Pat Marshall Award at the Rugby Writers’ Dinner, beating off the challenge of the likes of Richie McCaw and Victor Matfield.

The award was given in recognition of her immense efforts during the Women's Rugby Cup at the beginning of the season as well as for her years of dedicated service to the sport.

Alphonsi (who also snapped up the 2010 Sunday Times Sportswoman of the Year gong), joins luminaries such as Gareth Edwards, JPR Williams, Jean-Pierre Rives, David Campese and Jonah Lomu as recipients of the award.

Quite remarkable and thoroughly deserved.
