Kay made history with an unprecedented seven tries in the 64-0 win over Scotland in the Six Nations at Twickenham Stoop this March.
Along the way, she had become the first player to run in four first-half tries in the tournament, having completed a 27-minute hat-trick.
Kay was the top try-scorer in this year’s Six Nations with eight tries, only two fewer than former England full back Chris Diver’s competition record of 10, set 14 years ago.
She started her career wearing the No.10 shirt but nowadays plays anywhere in the back three.
She lifted the World Cup in 2014, scoring two tries against Samoa and one against both Spain and then Ireland in the semi-final.
She marked her 40th appearance with a try against Italy this February.
She travelled to Rio as a non-playing reserve for Team GB sevens. She has played for Richmond, Bristol and Thurrock, and returned to Richmond at the start of this season.
Educated at St Bede’s and University of Wales Institute, Cardiff, Kay began playing at the age of five and was with Old Caterhamians, Warlingham and Dorking in her formative years.
