Moving from prop to wing is hardly a well-trodden route but Amy Wilson Hardy did just that as a youngster.
That move, which came while she was playing for Worthing U15s, paid dividends as it helped the Poole-born back go on to carve out an international career.
Amy made her England Sevens debut in June 2013 in the FIRA European Sevens in Marbella and soon adapted to the smaller format of the game.
She went on to represent Team GB at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio, scoring two tries, and is part of the England squad heading to the Rugby World Cup Sevens in 2018.
Amy had previously featured in four HSBC World Rugby Women’s Sevens Series events in the 2017-18 season.
Amy played for Bristol since 2010 and won both the club’s most improved player and players’ player awards in the 2012-13 season and was also part of England’s 2017 Women’s World Cup team.
She scored on her two World Cup starts against Italy and the United States, and also came on as a replacement in the final as England were narrowly beaten by New Zealand.
