As well as being an elite athlete, a personal trainer and a diet and nutrition adviser, Nuneaton-born Vicky is also a coach. Formerly the UK’s top junior hurdler, she began playing rugby at the age of 14 after tiring of watching her brother play.
England’s Manu Tuilagi was in her year at school in Hinckley where she attended Mount Grace and John Cleveland College. She moved to Saracens from Lichfield after the World Cup in 2014, where she made six appearances. Two of these were off the bench, and she started the final where England beat Canada 21-9. She overcame an injury to make the 2017 Women's World Cup and made three appearances off the bench including in the final against New Zealand.
Despite making her Red Roses debut in August 2011 at the age of 21, Vicky raced to 50 caps by July 2015. After scoring two tries in her first 56 Tests, Vicky bagged a hat-trick in the 29-15 win over Italy at Twickenham Stoop in February 2017. It was the first by a front row forward in the history of the Women’s Six Nations. Her three tries spanned only 19 minutes and she went on to play in every match of the tournament that year.
Vicky was first involved in sevens with England at the Rugby Europe Grand Prix in Kazan in 2015 and is now a full-time member of the squad for the rest of the 2018 season.
