The youngest member of the squad when she was first called up Sarah Bern started her international career with England U20s as a back row forward, but has since converted to prop where she has thrived.

After earning England U20 recognition in 2015, Sarah stepped up to full Test level against France and the United States during the International Women's Rugby Series in the USA in July 2016.

She has since gone from strength to strength, becoming a regular starter for England in the front row.

At the 2017 Women's Rugby World Cup, Sarah started in four of England’s five games, including the final in Belfast against New Zealand. She was named as player of the match for her performance in the semi-final against France.

During the 2018 Women’s Six Nations Sarah played in all five matches, scoring two tries as England finished second.

Born in Kingston-upon-Thames, Sarah lives in Esher where she attended the high school between her initial education at Coombe Hill in Kingston and taking a sports strength & conditioning course at Hartpury College, University of Gloucestershire.

Her introduction to rugby came at 11-years-old at London Irish and after playing for Esher, Sarah joined Bristol Ladies.
