Rugby was always going to play a part in the life of Danielle, who is known as 'Nolli'. Her father, Jim, appeared in more than 450 games for Bath Rugby, both her brothers play and now she’s a World Cup winner, having scored a try in the 2014 final against Canada.

In fact, Nolli has played in three World Cups and three finals, and is England’s longest-serving current player.

She also represented Team GB in sevens at the Rio Olympic Games.

She made her Test debut in 2003, becoming the youngest girl at the age of 18 to represent her country, and has scored 41 tries in 70 Test appearances.

In 26 Six Nations games Nolli has scored 25 tries and made a dazzling 60-metre run to the line at Twickenham Stadium in a 39-6 victory last November.

Taunton born, she returned to the West Country when moving from Worcester to Bristol. She was Head of AASE Academy at Hartpury College before being contracted to England Rugby.

She is an Ambassador for Rugby for Heroes.
