Club captain and Dutch national captain Linde Van der Velden has led from the front since arriving from Toulouse in the summer, scoring the club’s first ever Allianz Premier 1s try against Gloucester-Hartpury in the opening round of the 2020-21 season. Having started playing rugby at 17, Van der Velden’s career has gone from strength to strength in both 15s and 7s. She made her international 15s and 7s debuts just four years after starting to play the sport, highlighting her natural talent. Competent in both forms of the game, Van der Velden scored her first World Series try for the Netherlands at the Langford 7s in 2017. Van der Velden was also named Dutch Player of the Year for 2019.
