Djougang decided to sign up for a tag rugby team organised by her office and learned on the fly for her first match.

The match, played on the home ground of Wanderers FC, proved crucial to Djougang’s future career, as she was asked to play for the home side for the upcoming season.

Djougang then made another leap of faith and started playing full-contact rugby for Wanderers, earning herself a Leinster trial just a season into her career.

After a move to Old Belvedere the following year, under the mentorship of her coach Alex Denby and Irish internationals like Ailis Egan and Marie Louise Reilly, she took another leap forward and made it to the All-Ireland League final playing flanker.

After a rapid rise through the ranks of Irish rugby, she was named in Ireland's squad for the 2019 Six Nations tournament.

Ahead of the Women's 2020 Six Nations, Djougang has once again been named for the Ireland squad. She has had 4 appearances and will look to add to this total.
