ENGLAND international Maud Muir has donated a prized possession to Oxford Quins to recognise the club’s role in her career.

The Oxford-born prop presented former coach Craig Twyford with the shirt she wore against Italy in the Women’s Six Nations this year.

The memorabilia will be framed and displayed in the clubhouse at Horspath Sports Ground.

Twyford coached Muir from Under 6 to Under 12 level and they toured all the Six Nations countries with their age group.

The forward said: “Oxford Quins was the first place I played rugby and was where I grew my love for the game.

“Craig, coaches, players and parents all played a huge part in giving me the confidence to go out on the pitch and play, which has helped me get to where I am now.”

Twyford added: “Maud was our fearsome and fearless captain.

“She was by far the most coachable player I worked with as a coach at Oxford Quins and there was never any doubt in my mind that she would one day play for England.”

Quins’ first XV face a tough pre-season test tomorrow as they travel to Championship side Jersey (3pm).

Meanwhile, Chinnor have their first home game of the summer as Blackheath visit Kingsey Road (3pm), with the Lauren Cyster Megabowl Trophy kicking-off at 1pm.
