RAF and Harlequins player Amy Cokayne has been selected in the England squad for this year's Autumn Internationals.

The Air Force hooker will be looking to add to her 51 caps after being picked as one of 30 players in the team.

Cokayne, who played a big part in the RAF's historic Inter Services win last year, has worked her way into the international set up since making her England debut against Italy in 2015.

She also won the European Championships with the England U18s Sevens squad.

Her family has a vast military background as her grandfather, father and brother were all in the Army.

Cokayne's father, Ian, left the Army to also serve in the RAF and his daughter followed suit.

She graduated from RAF Cranwell as a pilot officer in December 2018 after taking almost six months off from rugby.

Cokayne will be hoping to start for England in the first match of the series against France on Saturday.
