Grace Kemp’s rugby career is on the rise with the Harden Murrumburrah local drawing plenty of attention in 2017. Grace played in the Brumbies Super 7’s for The Canberra Royals U16 girls who competed in a series of matches against Broulee, Goulburn and Tumut.
The grand final was held in Wagga where Grace’s side ran out winners. She went on to be chosen as one of the Brumbies All Stars for the competition before pulling the boots on in the Bowral 7’s for the Brumbies girls side where she scored in all of the 4 games that she played. Grace also donned the colours of the apple isle when she helped out the Tasmanian side when they were short a player in their state game against Victoria.
After such a busy year, Grace went on to receive the Erin Da Deppo award for her contribution to the Canberra Royals Junior Rugby Club for her community spirit and was also nominated by the Royals Club President Trevor Hancock as a flag bearer at the Wallabies vs Argentina match Canberra on September 16. The last 4 Fridays have seen Grace coach 4-9 year olds including her brother Harry and his friends Tommie and Frank in the “budding brumbies” development program in Canberra. She is hoping for selection in a team to play at the Nationals Rugby 7’s in Brisbane early December.
