Wantoks is the most established women’s Touch team on the island with a steadfast history that dates all the way back to 1996. The team started initially as part of the men’s rugby section in Wanderers Rugby Football Club with a healthy mixture of expatriate and local players, both young and experienced. Under Maureen Thomson’s coaching for 3 solid years, the team won every Touch competition there was and has since grown in size and improved in playing standards. The team was later helmed by Anne Goh for the next 9 years and coached by various coaches from Australia and New Zealand.

 

In 2008, the Wantoks, together with their male Touch team mates, broke away from the Wanderers RFC and formed what is known today as Monsoon Touch Football Club. The women’s team, U Sports Monsoon Wantoks, till today still houses the feistiest, strongest female players on the field.

 

U Sports Monsoon Wantoks clinched 4th position in the recently concluded Singapore Winter Touch League 2012.
