Profile

Rochelle or "Rocky" as she's known to most, is what you'd call, delicately, the elder statesman in the England Squad. As the most capped player in the current squad, and vast amounts of coaching behind her, she's often compared to the great Jason Leonard. 

A leader in the front row Rochelle already has a glittering career to look back on but is determined to “triumph on a global stage” before she hangs her scrum hat up.

She's mixed rugby with being employed by Nexus in Chesham and has a BA (Hons) in Sports Science & Coaching to her name, too.

And she's already doing pretty well on the coaching front. She was appointed as head coach of Berks, Bucks & Oxon One North club, Chesham Stags for 2010-11 and can add a past captain of Henley and Marjons, the College of St Mark and St John in Plymouth to the mix as well.

She found rugby when she was 15 with Beaconsfield and after working her way through the England ranks at Under 19 and Academy level, well the rest is history.

As a loose head prop, she's a big fan of Wales' Gethin Jenkins and England's Andrew Sheridan and, with her taste of scoring tries – she's scored 19 so far and she's a prop - it's no wonder Jonah Lomu is another held in high regard.
