Profile

Natasha 'Mo' Hunt is not only a scrum-half for England and Lichfield but is also a qualified PE teacher at Sir Graham Balfour School in Stafford (for those that don't know, Sir Graham was a Victorian Statistician and member of Florence Nightingale's inner circle) having first worked as a trainee at King Edward's School in Birmingham (for those that don't know, King Edward was a king).

Natasha initially began her rugby career out as a full back but a move from Bristol to Lichfield also saw her switch positions. She has also represented Malvern, Bath, England Under 20s, England A and England Sevens. But it was the first time that she ran out at Twickenham in England colours that she says is the best moment of her career to date.

Her inspirations in the sport have been the former England Women's captain Sue Day and Susie Appleby.

She has excelled at Sevens, too, scoring 75 points including nine tries, 11 conversions and a penalty goal. Her touchdowns include one in both the Plate semi-final against Wales and in the final against Italy in Marbella as England won 19-12.

Away from rugby, Natasha has a love of baking although as yet I am yet to find out what her speciality in that field is. If her baking is anything like her rugby, she could probably dish up a cake, a savoury soufflé and a baked Alaska while balancing a rugby ball on her head.
