Touch Rugby World Cup Malaysia

Touch Rugby World Cup Malaysia

Personal message

I have been selected to represent South Africa in the Ladies 27's team in the upcoming Touch Rugby World Cup in Malaysia in April 2019.

I started playing touch rugby in the league at Mega Watt park in Johannesburg with friends. From there, I was selected to play for the Ladies A side to represent Gauteng. In 2003, I represented South Africa in the Mixed Open in Japan. In 2005 I left to study abroad in Australia. I gained huge exposure to the sport, playing in league, ground supervising down at Norths Touch, coaching Hornsby Girls, playing at State Cup and playing for the Sydney Scorpions. It was an amazing experience to play at such a high level and I was fortunate enough to gain the experience of playing with some of the top players in the sport. 

Touch rugby has gained momentum here in South Africa with a large drive to get youth involved at a school level. However,  It does still remain a self-funded sport and hence the reason for launching my BackaBuddy campaign. I am a mother of two young boys and work full time for an NGO that I started which empowers youth and communities. 

I am looking to raise R43 000 for the tour. I will use the funds to pay back money that I borrowed to make an urgent payment towards the tour and to pay for my flights. The flights are between R11 000 and R12 000. I also need to pay for an extra nights accommodation and meals and extras. 

I am so grateful for this amazing opportunity to represent my country again. I would like to thank you all for the all the support and encouragement that you give. I look forward to sharing our tour with you all and making our nation proud.
