You get the feeling, no matter how hard Scarlett could've tried, there was no way of her getting away from rugby. From the day she was born, rugby was in her veins. As indeed was blood. There can't be many families around the country who could boast that at one point “all six of my boy cousins were playing for one club.”
But that's only the tip of the iceberg. Cut deeper within and you have a rather impressive family rugby CV. Scarlett told us: “My grandfather played for LSE, Manchester, Lancashire, Northern Counties and was a reserve trialist for England in the 1950s. My uncle, Tony Cooper, captained Wasps and Hertfordshire in the 1970s, my father, David Wall, captained St Albans RUFC in the 1980s, my stepfather, Nick Scott, played for LSE and Old Grammarians, my cousin, Rupert Cooper, plays back row for Nottingham in the Championship, my cousin, Oliver Cooper-Millar, plays for Old Albanian National League 1 and my brother, Jackson Cooper-Wall, plays for Harpenden in London North 2.” Indeed, her family appears to be veritable Who’s Who of rugby.
Scarlett used to play lacrosse at school and loves skiing, as well. “I have skied since I was six years old and go every year at Christmas,” she said.
But it's on the rugby paddock where she feels most at home. On top of representing England U20s, Hertfordshire, East regional, London and South East and Midlands, being crowned U15 National Champions in 2009, Welwyn National 7s Champions in 2010-11 and Hertfordshire 7s Champions also in 2010-11. She rates one and all among her top achievements to date.
She went to St Dominics and St Georges, both in Harpenden before doing her A-Levels at Hartpury College, Gloucester. Now though, she's at Loughborough University studying Sports Management.
