The photo above and in the gallery at watsoniansrugby.com shows KT and her team in Kuwait in November 2006.

Sheena, one of Karen's ex-team mates sent the following explanation:
"She's been playing for a team in Qatar the Doha Rugby Club. She's awfie proud that they play in strip not far off a Watsonian strip. KT is top left doing some sort of stupid thing with her hands!"

Here is a quote from her travel blog:

"I am training with the Doha Rugby Club, here in Qatar and we travel away to play in the Arabian Gulf League once a month. I am in the middle of nowhere and funny thing is, in all the kit in all the world, we play in Watsonians colours (my Scottish Rugby club) - how cool is that! So every month we travel away to play 3, 4 or 5 games in a day. We played Sharjah, Dubai Exiles, Kuwait and Abu Dhabi and won three and drew against Kuwait. Should have been a clear run of all four games but we fell asleep in the second game. Ah well, something to improve on for the next round in Kuwait on 10 November..."
