Friday, December 1st, 2017

This week, one of Canada’s greatest-ever test rugby players officially retired from both the national 15s and sevens programs. Longtime Toronto Nomad Kelly Russell leaves the national side following an unprecedented career in which she helped lead women’s rugby in Canada to never-before-seen heights.

“Right now, it feels right for me. I’m thankful I’m doing it on my own terms and I’m just so grateful for all the people who helped me throughout my career,” said Russell in her official statement through Rugby Canada.

Kelly Russell, with mother Judy and sister Laura.

“The Toronto Nomads and the Ontario club rugby system and the entire Ontario rugby union were big parts of my career and then, obviously, Rugby Canada. My family, my teammates and my friends have all been so supportive over the years and I can’t thank them enough. As for my coaches, I feel that I’ve learned something from every single one of them along the way. They instilled values in me within rugby but also within life.

“Yes, I love the game and love playing the game, but I’m happy where I’m at right now and what I’ve done.”
