Swansea University women’s fencing captain Helen Kinsella is relishing the challenge facing her side at Varsity.
Swansea finished the season at the foot of the table without any points whilst Cardiff finished top, also securing the Bucs Fencing Trophy.
“I’m looking forward to Varsity, despite the challenge this season,” said Kinsella.
“With each member being assessed of their skills, this should rekindle our team’s competitive streak which we’ll definitely need for Varsity.”
Kinsella is anticipating the most experienced member of the team Ruth Bowley to perform “out of her skin.”
“I’m also looking forward to seeing Anna Lawrence, Zoe Beynon and Madeline Swift perform, all new to the sport at the start of the year.”
Kinsella is also aware that her side will have to train hard to beat a successful Cardiff side at Varsity.
“We all have our strengths and weaknesses within our team,” she said Kinsella added that fan support would be a huge boost for the team.
