Catherine Spencer has written a book about her life and most importantly when she was the captain of the England women’s rugby team for three years. She scored eighteen tries for England, won six of the eight Six Nations competitions she took part in, and captained her team to three championship titles, a European cup, two Nations Cup tournament victories and the World Cup final held on home soil in 2010, which thrust women’s rugby into the limelight. All of this while holding down a full time job, because the women’s team, unlike the men’s, did not get paid for their sport. Josephine meets Catherine and talks about her fascinating career.
‘Mud, Maul, Mascara’ by Catherine Spencer is nominated for the Sports Book of the Year Award
