Profile

As it says on Heather's own Personal Training Consultancy Business website, Heather "is one of life's achievers, she is an inspiration to so many around her and her key to success is to never quit".

That is something she is certainly famous for. The feisty back row is a shining example of that never quit spirit. She may suffer from severe alopecia but refuses to dwell on it, instead keeping the focus firmly on the sport she loves.

Not only is she a top-class rugby player but she's also represented Great Britain in bobsleigh, competing in junior championships, the British Championship and on the European circuit. She even made a return to bobsleigh in November 2010 as an injury replacement in the Britannia Rescue British team to compete in the Americas Cup.

And if that isn't enough of a let's just show you what I can do attitude, then add to Heather's skills the fact that she is a university sports lecturer at Warwickshire College where she also began studies for a MSc in Strength & Conditioning last year. Had enough yet? Never. The 26 year-old is also a Sky Sports Athlete Mentor and she has won awards as both England Sevens Coaches' Player of the Year and Players' Player of the Year.

She missed the 2010 WRWC final against New Zealand because of a hand injury (it must have been bad) but has since shown outstanding form in the Six Nations, including an irresistible Player of the Match performance with two tries in the 89-0 win over Scotland in March 2011.
