Meet Amy Kuilboer
from Ladies Premiership 1st XV

"As long as the sun's up and shining, things can't be that bad"


We take a break from Men's rugby this week for a look at the Women's rugby section. Meet Amy Kuilboer, hailing from Queensland, Australia, she is an exchange student and helps teach English at a local school for the 3 months period she will be in Hong Kong. Part of the Ladies Premiership 1st XV team, Amy has played different types of rugby since the age of 10, up to 12 Amy played on her primary school's boys team for rugby league. After going to high school, Amy began playing sevens ever since. Amy is a positive and welcomed addition to the Team and adds to the diversity of the players. For Amy, learning is a never ending process and playing 15s rugby gives Amy new factors to absorb under the guidance of Ladies team coaches, Jonathan and Kenny, as well as the support of team mates since she only experienced 15s rugby in Hong Kong.

Playing in the Kowloon Ladies Teams is no walk in the park and there is no shortage of tall challenges and tough competition. Yet Amy does not allow this to discourage her and maintains focus of the bigger purpose of rugby and life. "To appreciate being able to play rugby in different countries with different friends and to enjoy the game and play with all of your heart!"
It's hard to beat someone who refuses to give up!

Time flies-by when you are having fun with good company, soon Amy will be leaving us in December to head back to Australia. Although you will be missed in Kowloon Rugby Club, this is not a goodbye. They say "once you are a Loon, you are always a Loon" so there is always a position on theTeam for you!
