Sarah Hunter Nominated For World Rugby Women’s Player of the Year 2016

Bristol Ladies and England captain Sarah Hunter has been shortlisted for the prestigious women’s 15s Player of the Year awards for 2016. 

A veteran of 81 tests and the fifth most-capped England women’s player of the all-time, Sarah Hunter has been ever present for the Red Roses in 2016, scoring a try in their opening Six Nations match against Scotland as they finished runners-up to France and again to Canada in the Women’s Rugby Super Series in July.

A Women’s Rugby World Cup winner in 2014, the number eight will be a key player for England in a November campaign which sees them play the other teams in the world’s top five.

Bristol Ladies Hunter is up against Fiao’o Fa’amausili (New Zealand) and Gaëlle Mignot (France) for the award which will be presented at the World Rugby Awards at the Hilton London Metropole on Sunday, November 13th.
