Alex burst onto the international scene in 2011 and was among the youngest members to lift the Rugby World Cup trophy in 2014, having come off the bench to play in the last 15 minutes of the final. She studied Sports Psychology at Roehampton Uni and worked as a PA for children with disabilities.

On her 25th cap for the Red Roses, she was the Old Mutual Wealth Player of the Match when England beat France 10-5 at the Twickenham Stoop. Alex featured in every game of the 2017 Women’s Rugby World Cup in Ireland, receiving the player of the match for her performance against the USA and started the final against New Zealand. Contracted to sevens after the 2014 World Cup, she returned again for the 2017-18 season. She was educated at Watchetts Junior School and Kings International College, both in Camberley, and began playing at home town club Camberley in 1997 aged three.

Voted RPA Women’s Sevens Player of the Year 2018, Alex played in all five HSBC World Rugby Women’s Sevens Series events that season. She was a key part of the England squad victorious in their Olympic qualifying event in Kazan, crossing three times on day two. Alex has notched 100 points on the World Series.
