There cannot have been many players that have made such an impact as Jessica Breach did on her international debut when she scored an incredible six tries against Canada.
Not content with that, Jessica followed her opening display up with another five tries against the same opposition at Twickenham Stadium on her second cap.
The flying wing was a talented athlete growing up where she competed in the sprint hurdles and the relay at the English Schools Athletics Championships.
After starting rugby at the age of six at Chichester RFC, her development of the game was helped by her father John who was a rugby coach and represented Sussex and Norfolk during his playing days.
She progressed through the age groups at Pulborough and helped the club win the National Championship in 2006..
Success came early to Jessica as she won the European Sevens Championship with England Under 18s in 2014 and 2015 and captained the talent development group side in a win over Canada.
She also won a league and cup double in her first season with Harlequins after joining them in 2016.
In 2018, she moved to the England Sevens set up where she became a regular on the HSBC World Rugby Women's Sevens Series, scoring two tries in her first matches against USA in Sydney. Jessica was part of England’s bronze medal-winning team at the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games before being selected for the World Cup Sevens in San Francisco in July 2018.
In January 2019 she returned to XVs having been offered one of the 28 England full-time contracts and scored with her first touch back in international rugby against Ireland. She followed that up with eight further tries in the Women’s Six Nations to top the try scoring charts and held England to a Grand Slam, before playing for Harlequins in the Tyrrells Premier 15s final.
