Malissa Burniston Back - Flyhalf, Winger


Born in Maidstone, Kent.
Dark sense of humour!
Prone to sulking.

Never played Rugby before at any level but thrown in at the deep end and learning quickly with the support of her fellow teammates and coaches.
Burniston made the switch to rugby in 2017 and using her natural athletic ability was honoured with 2017/18 Most Improved Player award and 2017/18 Try of the Season.
The teams support and encouragement has contributed to her decision to become a fully committed member of the Lordswood family. Whilst the 2018/19 season has had her juggling two sports, we can be sure that next season is all about Rugby - welcome to the dark-side!

2019 - The switch has been made and this season Burniston made the switch to flyhalf, alongside her partner in crime who is scrum- half she plans to dominate this season and mature into an experienced player. With the new coach and manager being her potential father-in-law what could possibly go wrong?!
