Profile

An MBE for Services to Rugby and becoming the 2016 World Rugby Women’s Player of the Year have duly rewarded Sarah for her skill, dedication, determination and persistence to surpass 90 caps during her 11 years at top level. She celebrated the landmark by leading England to the Grand Slam with a 34-7 win over Ireland in this year’s Six Nations.

Only three players – Rochelle Clark (122), Tamara Taylor (102) and Amy Garnett (100) – have appeared more times than Sarah for England.

She started out playing rugby league as a nine-year-old at Goathland Primary School, attended Longbenton Community College and studied Sports Science and Mathematics at Loughborough University.

Sarah, who was born in North Shields, works as RFU University Rugby Development Officer for the South West and is based at the University of Bath when not contracted to England Rugby.

One try away for 100 international career points, Sarah has appeared in England’s last 25 matches.
