Injuries

Missed the 2013 season after rupturing patellar tendon. Broke kneecap 12 weeks after recovering and missed another six months. (bbc.com, 4 Feb 2016)


Reason: "Started playing rugby at the age of seven or eight. Before then, my dad took me tap dancing, but I was dreadful. I’ve got a twin brother and older brother, and they both played from about the age of four. I just wanted to be involved." (bbc.com, 4 Feb 2016; World Rugby YouTube, 19 Mar 2016)
Influence: "I have two older brothers who play and there is a lot of competition within our family to be the best and do well at sport." (bbc.com, 4 Feb 2016)
Additional information

FIRST PRO
First female professional rugby player in Wales after being granted elite athlete status by the Royal Air Force in February 2016. "When I was younger, I dreamt of being a professional rugby player, but in the back of my mind I thought 'scrap it'. As a female, you get to a certain age and assume it will not be possible. So it is a dream come true. Hopefully this is just the start and more women will become full-time too." (walesonline.co.uk, 10 Feb 2016)


MILITARY CAREER
Joined the Royal Air Force (RAF) in 2008. "It is an elite organisation and I wanted to actively serve in the armed forces to make a difference." (raf.mod.uk, 11 Feb 2016)


WORLD CUP
Represented Wales at the 2014 Rugby World Cup in France. (Instagram, 2 Sep 2014)
