Vickii Cornborough fell into rugby when her dad – for the sake of convenience – made all the family take part at home town club Portsmouth from the age of five to 10.
However, she carried on playing long after her brothers quit the game, moving to the girls’ game and joining Richmond at 18.
She represented England at U19 and U20 level and was in the U20 Nations Cup-winning team in 2008 and 2009 and played in nine of England’s 10 Test matches in 2015, missing only the Six Nations game against Ireland.
She was player of the match in her 10th game, against Ireland at Twickenham Stadium in February 2016 before scoring her maiden Test try against France three weeks later.
Vickii was a member of the 2017 Women's Rugby World Cup squad and featured in every game in Ireland, including the final against New Zealand.
She gained a BSc in Psychology at Reading University and is an IT business development manager.
In 2018 Cornborough continued her impressive consistency – appearing in all five Six Nations games as the Red Roses ended up second in the standings as well as all three winning Quilter Internationals. She was awarded a full-time contract in January 2019.
