Niamh Briggs said in an interview her potential is “mind-blowing”.
Parsons has attracted many fans online, but not only that but the attention of bigger brands and sponsorships.
Women’s rugby is still an amateur game. It hasn’t stopped the attention of big brands looking to get a slice of the pie.
Women’s rugby has not been certified as professional yet. it hasn’t stopped from joining up with other famous Irish female athletes in LineUp Sports Management, an agency run by David McHugh. The Agency has also got athletes like Annalise Murphy and Rachael Blackmore on it’s roster.
The winger’s try today isn’t the only time she has turned heads. Last year in the Women’s Six Nations Parsons scored brilliant tries against Scotland and Wales.
