GTS Europe supports England Red Rose player

David Williams, Managing Director, GTS Europe, has confirmed a financial sponsorship package for Rosie Galligan (pictured left), who is due to step out with the Red Roses at this weekend’s Six Nations Grand Slam decider against France in Paris.

“This young woman is made of tough stuff,” explains Williams. “Not enough that she has scaled the heights of club and country on the rugby pitch, but when you read of her struggles off the pitch, things quickly come into perspective.”

In 2019, the Harlequins and England lock was 24 hours away from having both of her legs amputated after contracting meningitis. Having recovered, she got back to fitness and in spring of 2020, was back on the field of play, when a freak accident saw her smash her ankle, fracture three bones and multiple ligament damage – it looked like her career was over.

“Needless to say, the strength of character and resilient patience has paid off, with her stepping out in the England kit once more this weekend,” adds Williams. “Best of luck, Rosie. You are an inspiration and we are proud to support you.”
