Full name: Francesca Yvonne Kyle
Job: MOD civil servant
Rugby position: Flanker or Hooker
Years played for RRFC Ladies: This is my second season
Age started playing rugby & why: 25, I joined shortly after watching the women’s Sevens at the Olympics. Had always wanted to play but wasn’t sure about opportunities for beginners, I saw the BBC get inspired add and was directed the the RFU club finder page.
Which premiership team do you support & why: Wasps, their home ground was previously at Adams Park and I live right nearby.
Rugby hero & why: Shaun Johnson, I remember watching a YouTube clip of his greatest tries and it just left me speechless.
Best thing about playing for RRFC Ladies: Oh there are so many great things about playing for Risborough but the best thing for me is our team spirit. The sense that we have all got each others backs, I know that even if I mess up my teammates won’t judge me, we shake it off and get back in there. That feeling gives me such a sense of pride, making me want to do the best I can for my team.
