Indian origin Rugby coach is Personality of the Year

A 30-year old, Indian-origin rugby coach has been honoured with Personality of the Year award for guiding his team to its first title in New Zealand.

Auckland-born Rahul Das, a fourth year medical student, was honoured at Dunedin Club Rugby Awards this week for his impressive effort to help his team register the victory.

"I am not sure how I got into rugby. I have just always followed the All Blacks (New Zealand National Rugby Team) I guess", Das told a news source.

Das played rugby at school and at a social club but unfortunately, had to give up after facing some injuries. Das remained involved in the sport through coaching, initiating with the university women's team.

"There are definitely some long hours. But you can't have too much of one thing in your life, so I guess rugby gives me some of that balance. I get to do something that I really enjoy and also get to work with some really cool people", Das quoted.
