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 then represented Team GB in sevens at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.
Returning to XVs 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.
She went on to represent England Sevens at the 2018 Rugby World Cup Sevens in San Francisco as well as winning a bronze medal at the 2018 Commonwealth Games, before returning to XVs with a full-time contract in January 2019 and joining Gloucester-Hartpury.
Success continued for Natasha in 2019 when she played in every game of the Women’s Six Nations as England won the Grand Slam, starting in the matches against Wales and Scotland, and scoring a try at Twickenham in the final match of the tournament.
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 has a PE teacher.
