Sarah Hunter MBE has won over 100 caps for her country and enjoyed a long and glittering career in the game that is far from finished.
Now playing for Loughborough Lightning in the Tyrrell’s Premier League, the No.8 previously played for Bristol and Lichfield.
She began playing the game as a nine-year-old at primary school where she started off playing Rugby League as a Wigan supporter. She moved into the Union code as a teenager and never looked back.
Sarah quickly became a permanent fixture in the England squad and played a full role in the 2010 World Cup. With a host of medals at club and representative level, Sarah was a key member of the England team that won the 2014 World Cup in France with victory over Canada. She has numerous Six Nations medals and Grand Slams under her belt.
She was awarded an MBE for Services to Rugby and became the World Rugby Women’s Player of the Year in 2016. Her playing and leadership skills are still widely respected throughout the game.
Her love of the sport is one of the reasons why Sarah was more than happy to become a didi rugby ambassador.
“I am a really big advocate of didi rugby because it is a great way to get children into sport through the tools of rugby and the core values that the sport stands for,” she said.
“didi teaches children all about team work while having fun and improving their balance and co-ordination.
“Rugby is a great sport and one that we love and try to inspire young children to be a part of.”
