Experienced forward Poppy Leitch impressed everyone who watched her last season, with her performances seeing her shortlisted for the Premier15s Team of the Season.

A natural leader on the field, Leitch was named as co-captain, alongside Kate Zackary, ahead of the 2021/22 season.

Having made her debut off the bench against her former club last season, she has been a mainstay in the match-day side ever since. More recently forging a strong second-row pairing alongside Canadian McKinley Hunt.

An England international, Leitch won her first senior cap against Italy in the 2016 Six Nations Championship and was most recently involved in the 2019 Grand Slam winning side.

She was also part of the triumphant University of Exeter side that won back-to-back BUCS Gold titles, before taking up the role of Women’s Head Coach at the University at the start of the 2019/20 academic year.

Poppy is sponsored by Compton Valley Wealth Management, and Head coach of Exeter University Women’s Rugby Club.
