Preferred playing position: Wing

When, where and why/how did you start playing rugby? Standing on the sidelines watching Harpenden minis aged 10, when some family friends began throwing a ball around. At 14 when my sister joined Scorpions I stopped playing for a couple of years, until I joined OA’s at 16 (and have been here ever since!).

Representative Honours: England U16 & U18 Development Squad

Who is your rugby hero (and why)? Jason Robinson – simply class, skilful and exciting to watch.

Best rugby moment? Scoring against Saracens in the Premiership.
