Yamba Buccaneers rugby player Kyah Foster has been selected in the NSW Country Junior Girls Rugby Union U14s team after the NSW Country Junior Rugby titles at Kiama last weekend.

Playing for the Mid North Coast Tomahawks, Foster was selected after strong performances against Central Coast and Central West.

Unfortunately, the MNC side couldn’t do as well as Foster, with the Hunter Wildfires taking the U14s title.

Foster, playing fullback and wing for the Tomahawks, was outstanding in the team’s two games, with her strong running and excellent defence the highlights of her games.
Foster plays in the U13s Junior Buccaneers team, and her selection is just reward for an outstanding start to her rugby career.

In just her third season, playing against boys at club level, she has also represented the Far North Coast U13s Junior Girls team.

Yamba Buccaneers Club President Adrian Miller said Foster’s selection was an out-standing achievement.

“We could not be prouder of Kyah and what she has achieved,” he said.

“Being selected in an age group above her age shows what an excellent rugby player and athlete she is.

“She has amazing talent and potential and we think this is just the start of a very promising rugby career.

“The whole club is behind her and we can’t wait to see what she achieves on the national level playing for NSW Country.”
