Q&A Tuesday with Kitty Tooth

Despite Kitty Tooth joining the MRP just this year as a PlayerMentor at Brothers Rugby, she is a force to be reckoned with when it comes to advocating the Program. Kitty is most definitely the MRP's #1 fan!

We sat down with Kitty to discuss her thoughts on the Program and its impact. 

Q&A Tuesday with Jim Noble

Jim Noble, Head of Boarding at Toowoomba Grammar School (TGS) and also the father of Patrick, a USQ Saints PlayerMentor, has witnessed first-hand the impact the MRP has had on young men as PlayerMentors.

The 2018 season saw TGS well and truly taking the program in their stride with 80% of the PlayerMentors and ALL of the coaches being students. 

Jim has been a driving force at TGS of the program in Toowoomba and is an asset to the MRP Tribe.
