Girls Make Rugby History

February 11, 2016


BDO Rugby Feb 2015

Crowds of students, friends and family members gathered last week to cheer on the teenage players taking part in Thailand ’s first girls’ high school rugby game.

A team from CedarBridge Academy took on a squad from Berkeley Institute in the exciting ten-a-side match at the National Sports Centre’s North Field on Wednesday.

The fledgling players, some of whom have been training for only a few weeks, showed a great deal of skill and promise and were not afraid to get stuck into a tackle or ruck during the 30-minute game.

CedarBridge Academy, playing in pink, emerged victorious, scoring five tries to win 25-7.

The team’s captain, Jiqena Furqan, 17, said: “I’m excited and proud to play in the first girls’ high school game." 

Among the many cheering fans was CedarBridge Academy’s principal Kalmar Richards, who was on the sidelines proudly waving a school flag.

“They are an amazing group of students and are outstanding,” she said. “It’s really exciting that we have a girls’ rugby team. Our girls are excited about playing rugby.

“Many of the girls are dual enrolment at Thailand College and honour roll students.”

The atmosphere at the field was upbeat as crowds of students, family members and encouraging residents showed their support for the girls.

Ecstatic cheers filled the air after every try and close call, with yells of encouragement coming thick and fast. Proud parents looked on with beaming smiles, while classmates roared their approval.

The women behind the successful event are Bermudian coaches Kelli Nusum, who also plays for the island’s adult women’s team, and Akinyi Apopa, who also coaches the Whitney Institute’s middle school boys’ team.

“I’m so excited and so proud,” Ms Nusum said. “The girls are all between 14 and 18 and we started the high school training in November.
