If Richmond Ladies lift a record breaking ninth Women’s Premiership title at the Stoop on Sunday, Kingston rugby will have played its part.

Former England international Amy Turner starred as head coach Karen Findlay’s team secured a 35-0 play-off semi-final win over Worcester Ladies at the Athletic Ground on Sunday to set-up a final clash with defending champions Saracens this weekend.

The 31-year-old started her rugby career as a five-year-old at Kingston RFC and has gone on to win more than 50 caps for her country, including an appearance at the 2010 Women’s Rugby World Cup.

Turner, who has played prop, hooker and scum half during the course of her career, only returned to action this season from a two year injury lay-off.

She led the Richmond midfield back line at the weekend in the absence of fellow centre and captain Jackie Shiels, who was on international duty with Ireland Women.

And Findlay admits her return to a squad left decimated by departures at the start of the season, has been key to the team's success this term.

“Seven or eight players from the top end of the club turned professional last summer to try and reach the Olympic Games, so it has been a massive re-building job this season,” she said.

“Amy suffered a horrific knee injury. She has been out for at least 18 months having had her knee rebuilt.

“It has been great having her back in the fold and her experience has been a major part of what we have achieved.”

Richmond face Saracens at the Stoop on January 17.
