RAF star Amy Cokayne will play for England at the 2019 Women’s Six Nations in February.

The 22-year-old is currently training with the international team at the Bisham Abbey National Sports Centre ahead of the opening game against Ireland on February 2.

The call-up comes just weeks after Cokayne was commissioned for service at RAF Cranwell.

Cokayne also plays her club rugby for Wasps and is an experienced player in the England set-up. She already has 41 caps for the national team after starring at youth level for her country.

She won the European Championships with the England U18 Sevens team in 2014 before scoring her first try for the senior side against Canada at the 2015 Rugby Super Series.

She was ever-present for England at her first World Cup in 2017 and also has past success at the Six Nations tournament.

In 2017, she scored a hat-trick of tries against Scotland while last year, she scored twice and played in all five games as England finished second in the championship standings.

Cokayne is one of seven players in the team entered into elite player squad agreements, but for the first time, 28 players in the team are on full-time contracts for 2019.
