Nelson, who was in the Scottish Alpine Ski Team (2009-2012), was called up to join Scotland Women for the 2016 Six Nations match against France at Broadwood Stadium.

She was awarded player of the match in the first Women’s Rugby World Cup Qualifier against Spain at Scotstoun Stadium in November 2016.

Nelson scored eight points, one try and a penalty, in Scotland’s first away Six Nations victory in the 2018 championship against Ireland.

She was named as one of eight ‘2021’ contracted players by Scottish Rugby ahead of the 2018/19 season moving from Murrayfield Wanderers to French Top 8 club, Montpellier.

Born in Inverness, she first played rugby at the age of six at Lochaber Rugby Club. More recently she was part of the successful Murrayfield Wanderers team who won the 2016/17 league and cup double.

While studying Geophysics and Meteorology at Edinburgh University, she played for the university alongside her club Murrayfield Wanderers.
