Christine Belisle

Tighthead


Christine Belsille

Canadian born Belisle took up rugby at the age of 15 at Thomas A Stewart Secondary School in Peterborough.

She played under coach Craig Harris all through the rest of her schooling.

Following her High School graduation, she trained for a further semester with her school to play one more season with her squad before going travelling both in Canada and in Europe.

Falling in love with Glasgow, she decided to move to the city in 2015. She found her local club Cartha Queens Park and was a key part of the Glasgow side until 2021. Belisle currently plays for Premier 15s side, Loughborough Lightning.

In 2018, Christine became eligible to represent Scotland through residency and joined the Scotland Women programme via the Scottish Qualification Programme. Injury prevented her from training with the squad properly until 2019.

She was selected in 2019 to be part of the squad travelling to South Africa and received her first cap in the first Test match of the tour.
