Name: Kate Barnes

Nickname: Barnsey

Committee Position: Club Captain

Playing Positions: Openside, anywhere in the back line.

Profile: Been around the rugby scene for 17 years which means I am a rugby veteran now! Have done the rounds, BUSA final for Loughborough 4 times, England students, England Emerging, played at Thanet wanderers Nott Casuals, Lichfield and been an OA Saint for 11 years. Moved from being a winger/fullback most of my rugby career to openside for the last three seasons and love it. Smashing people on the park and being a nuisance is what I do best! Think I became Club Captain because I’m one of the oldest playing saints left and OAs is my second home!

Funniest moment: Navigating my way through Amsterdam wearing a fat suit with only a toothbrush after waking up next to a Welshman dressed in a banana outfit!

Fascinating Fact:  Play Chess, cribbage and have a bit of a foot fettish!
