Touch Rugby Selection
Kensie is new to Christ’s Hospital, having just started in the Sixth Form as a Deputy Grecian; even though there are a lot of new sports for Kensie to choose from at CH, there is no doubt that she will continue with her passion – touch rugby.
Kensie has played touch rugby since the age of 10, starting at Marlborough College Malaysia and Tanglin Rugby Club in Singapore. She worked her way up to the Tanglin Rugby Club Premier League Team 2 years ago and was a member of the Singapore World Cup Squad. Such is her love of the sport that, this July, the day after she moved to England, she joined CSSC Eagles in London. More recently, she has been playing Regional Level Touch Rugby, being selected for the South East England Taipans. Kensie’s team won the Nationals, and on the back of her performances, she was selected for the England High Performance Training Squad (the initial England squad for the European Championships and World Cup). As this is the Open Women’s Squad, she will be one of the youngest members of the squad.
Kensie will make her International debut for England in October, when she travels with the England squad to play in the European Challenge Cup in Spain over half term. Christ’s Hospital wish Kensie well in what will be a tremendous experience for her!
