Kristin, Astrid and Mari, Youth Unstoppables, Norway

Norwegian sisters have grown up surrounded by rugby and harbour dreams of playing for Norway and encourage more girls to take up rugby

Norwegian sisters Kristin, Astrid and Mari have grown up surrounded by rugby.

It was through the game that their parents met, when mum Bronia refereed a match that dad Jon-Thomas was playing in!

Rugby had helped Bronia settle into life in Norway after she moved from Australia as a student while dad Jon-Thomas represented the men’s national team.

It is perhaps unsurprising, therefore, that they have raised three children who have such an affinity with the oval ball.

Eldest daughter Kristin, now 16, attended her first rugby tournament when she was only six days old and the three girls have grown up playing on the same team at Sagene IF in Oslo.

All three siblings, Kristin, 16, Astrid, 14, and Mari, 11, harbour dreams of playing for Norway themselves and hope to help encourage more young women and girls in the country to take up rugby.
