Amy Evans has had an incredibly rapid rise to the top level of women’s rugby.
She only began playing the sport in 2014, when she turned out for Skewen RFC.
Unbelievably, just five months later, she was selected for the Wales squad for the Women’s Six Nations and she made her debut off the bench against England in a 13-0 victory.
The powerful tight head prop now has over 20 caps and continues to play for her club, along with regional side, the Ospreys.
“I decided just to play rugby as a bit of fun,” said Evans. “Being in a team environment and having the players and your friends and family helping you along, it takes the pressure away from you.”
Amy may have only started playing rugby at a late age but she was an avid sports fan as a girl. She began competing internationally in weightlifting and represented Wales at several events.
When Amy is away from the playing field, she works at a gym and is a fitness instructor.
Her battle with diabetes is indicative of a strong-willed sports women who we are delighted to have in the didi rugby family.
