Natasha Hunt’s rugby career began at the age of 17 when her PE teacher suggested that she tried the sport.
Her England dream became reality in the space of a few months as she progressed from the West Midlands trials, the high-performance academy and trials for the England U20 squad.
She went on to start the 2014 Women's Rugby World Cup final, earning her 29th cap and victory over Canada.
Natasha represented Team GB in sevens at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.
Returning to 15s after the Olympics, she was awarded with a full-time professional EPS contract in September 2016 and was part of the squad that reached a second successive World Cup final in 2017, starting against New Zealand.
A foot injury caused her to miss the start of the 2017/18 season where she moved back into the England Sevens programme on a full-time basis.
Gloucester-born Natasha was educated at Dean Magna Community School, Hartpury College and Bath University and when she's not contracted to England Rugby she is a PE teacher.
Plagued by injury for much of the 2018 season, Natasha played in just the Kitakyushu leg of the 2017/18 HSBC World Rugby Women’s Sevens Series.
But she was named as captain of England in the first leg of the Rugby Europe Grand Prix in France in May before earning selection for the World Cup Sevens in San Francisco in July 2018.
