One thing that Fran surely wouldn’t mind as a rugby player is when she has to play in the wet. That’s because she’s a former lifeguard at DC Leisure Arena in Camberley and names the sport of surfing as one of her favourite things to do outside rugby. She is now a contracted sevens player with England. Fran helped England to finish third in the Dubai leg of the 2015/16 World Series and was a try-scorer in the 35-0 win over Japan. She played in her 10th event in Las Vegas this March.
Educated at Watchetts Junior and Kings International College in Camberley, Frimley-born Fran went on to East Durham and Houghall Community College in Durham where she took a BTEC National Diploma in Sports Fitness. Her England debut was in the 80-3 win over Sweden nine years ago and her most recent cap at XVs came against New Zealand in July 2013. Her sister Alex was an influential member of England Women’s squad for the 2016 Old Mutual Wealth Series.
