Natasha’s rugby career began at the age of 17 when her PE teacher suggested that she tried the sport.
Her England dream became reality in the space of a few months as she progressed from the West Midlands trials, the high performance academy and trials for the England U20 squad. She went on to start the 2014 Women's Rugby World Cup final that brought her 29th cap and the triumph over Canada.
She represented Team GB in rugby sevens at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. Returning to the 15s game after the Olympics, she was awarded with a full-time professional EPS contract in September 2016 and was part of the squad that reached a second successive World Cup final in 2017, starting against New Zealand.
A foot injury caused her to miss the start of the 2017/18 season where she moved back into the sevens programme on a full-time basis.
When not contracted to England Rugby, she is a PE teacher. Gloucester-born Natasha was educated at Dean Magna Community School, Hartpury College and Bath University.
