Favourite rugby memory? My favourite memory of rugby is when I was picked to be the England mascot for the first Test between England and the NZ Black Ferns in November 2011

Goals for 2013/14 season? Mainly to continue my development and conditioning for when I play U15s next season for Thurrock T-Chicks
Funniest rugby moment? I always thought it funny when I played in the minis, when boys laughed at me on the opposite team because I was a girl in the scrum. They didn’t laugh much after I smashed them!
Who will win the Women’s Rugby World Cup in 2014? England
Favourite Emvale kit & why – I love the camo compression top as it keeps me nice and warm, and also my body does not ache as much after the game when I wear it.I also love the hoody, again it keeps warm and when I am training it is so light I can run faster and the holes in the sleeves and hood are really cool
