​​​​​​Three RAF rugby union players have been selected to represent their home nations at the Rugby World Cup in two weeks.

Forward Amy Cokayne, who has 64 England caps, has been selected for the England squad that will travel to New Zealand.

Cokayne nearly started her international playing career in New Zealand after her family emigrated there when she was nine years old.

England will be entering the World Cup with 25 international test wins in a row under their belt, making them among the favourites to win.

Selected for the Scotland squad is Amy’s RAF colleague and Harlequins teammate, Sarah Bonar. It is Scotland's first World Cup in 12 years.

Another RAF star, Carys Williams-Morris, has been selected for the Welsh squad.

The Rugby World Cup gets underway on 8 October - a year after it was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
