Kay said, ''I loved playing at the BUCS Final event and The SuperGrad Player of the Tournament competition gave it an added spark. Sport is such a huge part of my life. I am going to use the prize money on new rugby kit, getting my rugby qualifications and all the petrol to get to and from games and training.''
