At just 20 years old, Lara Bürger has already made significant strides in her rugby career. Representing the Heidelberger Ruder Klub (HRK), Lara has achieved multiple accolades, including:

Lara’s preferred position is fly-half, where her passing, speed and agility make her a formidable opponent on the field.


Michelle Henninger

Michelle Henninger, 22, brings a wealth of experience and versatility to the team. With 12 years of playing rugby under her belt, Michelle has been a key player for RG Heidelberg. Her accomplishments include:

– Winning the German Championship in 15s rugby in 2018

Michelle plays as a Hooker and Prop, positions that highlight her strength and technical prowess in the scrum.

Both Lara and Michelle are prime examples of the talent emerging from Germany, and their participation in the North Dorset 7s is a testament to the growing collaboration between German and English rugby through the Bamboos United project.

Keep an eye on these rising stars as they bring their skills and passion to the field this weekend.
