Tamara Taylor is an English female rugby union player, who captained England in the 2015 Women’s Six Nations Championship. She was the 2017 RPA Player of the Year when she was one of only three women who had made more than 100 appearances for her country. She is currently the 3rd most capped England player of all time.

Tamara has made 115 appearances for her country, representing England at the 2006, 2010, 2014 & 2017 World Cups, winning in 2014.

Named as 2017 RPA Player of the Year, She is currently playing in the Premier 15s with Champions, Saracens.

With her mother, Teresa, captaining the Zambian Golf Team and representing England Senior Ladies, and her brother being a British U16 Real Tennis champion, a life in sport was always on the cards for Tamara. If she isn’t playing sport, she’ll be talking about it and coaching it in her role as one of the RFU’s community rugby coaches.

She played in the 2006 and 2010 World Cups but her greatest success is winning the 2014 World Cup in France where she played a part in every game – starting four and coming off the bench against Spain in the pool stages.

Born in the West Country, Tamara grew up in Zambia and then Botswana until she was 7 years old. On return to the UK, Tamara’s family settled in a village near Reading, where she had her first taste of playing rugby at the age of 11 at Oratory Prep School. She then joined Henley Rugby Club, aged 15, where her competitive playing career began and made the England Students team aged 17. While at university in Newcastle, where she gained a Bsc (Hons) in Biomedical Sciences, she was also selected to play for Great Britain’s Students at rugby league and went on tour to Russia with the England U21 and Students GB team.
