Ms Koh Mei Giet
Womens Rugby Representative
Mei Giet started playing rugby to make up number for the team she was in charge of when she was a Physical Education teacher in National Junior College. While many of her students did not continue with the sport, she continued and went on to represent Singapore from 2008 till today in the 15s game. Her most memorable rugby moment was when Singapore beat Thailand by 2 points to gain promotion to ARFU Women’s 15 Division 1 in 2012. The win over Hong Kong in the subsequent year to retain Division 1 status by 2 points came a close second.
Mei Giet can still be seen playing for Bedok King Skyllas in the regional and domestic leagues. She gives back to the club by taking up the forward coaching role and continues to share her love and knowledge of the game by mentoring young players in the team.
As the women’s representative in the Management Committee, Mei Giet’s wish is for more girls to know rugby and discover the joy of playing rugby.
