Our co-sponsored player at Castleford Tigers Women, Kelsey Gentles, is the latest guest on the Tiger Talk podcast.
Kelsey, a dynamic winger, who is also an England international, is interviewed from her home for the podcast, which was uploaded at the weekend (August 1).
You can see the programme for free here. Among other things, Kelsey discusses how she started in rugby, her life away from the game, the potential for women’s rugby league to turn professional, and the importance of broadcaster Clare Balding’s appointment as president of the Rugby Football League.
21-year-old Kelsey was top try scorer and Castleford Tigers supporters’ player of the year last season, and was a nominee for Telegraph Woman of Steel (the player of the year in Women’s Super League) after helping Castleford to the League Leaders Shield and to both the Challenge Cup Final and Super League Grand Final.
She was also part of the England team which competed in the 2019 World Cup 9s in Sydney and the tour of Papua New Guinea.
Recently, Kelsey appeared in our comedy promo-video With a T, and has been a key worker in retail during the height of the pandemic. Even if the already-delayed 2020 season cannot go ahead, our support will continue into 2021, as co-sponsors of Kelsey, alongside Atkinsons Fencing and Castle Commercial Cleaning Services.
