Natasha grew up playing hockey and represented England from U14 to U21 level. She was also the 2010 Kent Sportswoman of the Year and has a hockey gold medal in the GB Youth Olympics on her impressive sporting CV. Then came the lure of rugby when she was 22. She said: “I knew of Jonny Wilkinson and really admired him as an athlete. My dad bought me his autobiography.”
She was also involved in the 2014 World Cup winning squad. Natasha played in the São Paulo World Sevens Series event last season and scored a try against both Fiji and Brazil in the final two matches. To date she has played in 17 events and scored 41 tries, eight in the Dubai, Sydney and Las Vegas tournaments this season.
Gravesend-born, she had obtained a BA Honours in English and American Literature at Kent University in before taking up a full time sevens contract in September 2014. She unwinds by listening to music, eating and “occasionally trying to do something cultural”. Eggs Benedict are her favourite breakfast and she describes herself as “fun, scatty and determined”.
