SPF Maths teacher wins bronze medal in Touch Rugby World Cup

Published on 22/05/19

Congratulations to Senior School Maths teacher, Vicki Franks, on winning a bronze medal in the 2019 Touch Rugby World Cup.

Vicki was part of the Woman’s 27 England Team that went to Malaysia for the 2019 Touch Rugby World Cup and is now the proud owner of a bronze medal.

Vicki started playing touch rugby eight years ago as a way to keep fit during the summer, and now plays with the Cambridge Touch Association on weekends and in the evenings. Her journey to the World Cup began with being selected to play for the region where she competed at the Nationals and was then scouted by national coaches to train with the England squad.

As a teacher, Vicki is especially keen to get young people involved with touch rugby. She describes it as:

“a very fast paced game where you have to make really quick decisions and the use of strategy is really important. It is also a really good basis for anyone wanting to play Union and League rugby.”

Everyone here at the Stephen Perse Foundation is delighted about her achievement.
