England and Lichfield full back and centre Emily Scarratt already boasts an impressive international record at just 22. She has amassed 170 points since her debut, including 16 conversions and six penalty goals. Her latest goal-kicking contribution was three conversions and a penalty when England lifted the European Cup with a 29-25 victory over France in Rovereto, Italy in May this year. She had returned to the starting line up after helping England to success in the IRB Challenge Cup Sevens at Twickenham six days earlier.
Emily had previously helped England to a 22-10 win over hosts Canada in the Nations Cup earlier this year with two conversions and a penalty goal and put over three conversions and another penalty in the 41-19 final triumph over the same opponents.
Her on field successes have not gone unnoticed, being awarded the Leicester Mercury Young Sports Woman in 2007-08, and has toured Canada twice with England U20s and seniors since making her debut four years ago, having amassed 40 senior caps.
