In 26 days the Red Roses will fly for Ireland hoping to return world champions. We're bringing you a Red Rose a day, until the squad depart.
Next up is 2014 Women's Rugby World Cup winner Rachael Burford.
What do you remember about the first time you played rugby?
"I remember it being cold, sitting in my dad’s car and getting him to help me put my boots on, running out with all the boys at Medway Rugby Club."
What’s the best piece of advice you’ve been given?
"To be yourself and not to compare yourself to anyone else."
What does it mean to you to play for England?
"It’s the greatest honour to represent your queen and country so it means everything to me. It’s everyone’s dream and it takes a lot of hard work to get there."
What do you remember of receiving your Red Rose after your England debut?
"I was the youngest girl on tour and to be surrounded by so many experienced players was just a dream come true. It was a huge honour."
Who has been the biggest influence on your career?
"My whole family, my mum and my sister both played and my dad was the main driving force in my career but growing up I was very fortunate to have a couple of female role models. Without those two playing and my dad being heavily involved I probably wouldn’t be where I am today."
If you were stranded on a desert island, what’s the one thing you would take with you?
"I would take music, just because if I’m going to be on my own then I’m going to need something to dance to."
What’s your guilty pleasure?
"Peanut butter. There’s some healthy types and some not so healthy types and probably large volumes of it is not so healthy."
If you could attend one sporting event, which one would you pick?
"Men or women’s Rugby World Cup."
If you could choose three celebrities to do Come Dine With Me, who would you choose?
"Jonny Wilkinson, Dan Carter and Zebo."
What is the one thing from home you always take with you on tour?
"My little pillow."
If you could choose one superpower for the day, what would you pick?
"I’d like to be invincible and find out what people were up to behind closed doors."
