Kay Wilson


Key Facts

Height1.67m (5'6")
Weight68kg (10st 9lb)


Kay started her career with a 10 on her back but you'll find her playing anywhere in the back three these days. Having bagged 21 caps so far in the XVs version of the game and a sack full of Sevens games under her belt, Kay is one of the “gas women”. And she was quick, too, to burst onto the England scene after being selected for the Under 20s against France in March 2011.

She made her debut in the Nations Cup later that year and came off the bench in the famous 10-0 win over New Zealand at Twickenham in November 2011. Her first start came against Scotland in the 2012 Six Nations and her first try came against Wales in the 33-0 win later on in the tournament.

Given the strengths of her game – passing and speed -  Sevens is playing a big part in the life of Kay Wilson and beating Australia to win the Hong Kong Sevens in March 2012 rates as her most memorable success in an England shirt. Did we mention it was beating the Aussies in the final? She also popped across to Spain for the Marbella Sevens in the European Series and bagged four tries in the latest of her five tournaments. And more recently she added the BUCS Sevens tournament to her ever-growing list of awards.

Back to XVs and after two seasons with Richmond she now plays her rugby with Bristol, mixing a Sports Development course at Cardiff Met with a world record attempt at how many times she can cross the Severn Bridge in a week. She will soon have to have a highly paid job in order to pay off the toll.
