    The youngest member of the Wales squad, Keira has certainly made rapid strides in a relatively short playing career.

    She only took up rugby in January 2014 but by the end of the year she had already represented Wales in Sevens at both Under 18 level (in Sweden) and at senior level (in Dubai where Wales won the Women's Invitational event).

    The PE teacher won 25 caps with Wales before taking a four year break. She was named player of the season in 2003-04. She was attracted to the game initially by the camaraderie, team spirit and the passion of her UWIC colleagues.

    She became captain of the national side when she led Wales out for the first time against England at Cross Keys in the 2011 Six Nations campaign and gained her first win as skipper a week later against Scotland.

    She missed the following Six Nations campaign after taking a year out to travel but returned for the beginning of the 2012 tournament.

    Club Waterloo

    The Service Advisor from Dolgellau returned to the international fold in 2010 after a brief spell away from the game.

    She can play either as a centre or wing. Speed obviously runs through the family as her uncle is Gwyndaf Evans, one of Wales's best rally drivers in recent history.

    Evans joined a select few when she raced over for a hat trick of tries against Scotland in the 2011 Six Nations championship. She finished the campaign with four tries to finish with 20 points - the squad's highest scorer of the championship.

    In the 2014 Six Nations championship the Dolgellau-based Evans showed her versatility by playing centre, winger then full-back in consecutive games against Ireland, France and England.

    The former UWIC student forced her way into the 2010 World Cup squad after impressing the coaching panel in the Regional Championship.

    The Aberaeron product came through the system where her industrious work in the back row made her a key figure for Wales at Under 20 level.

    A flanker by trade, she stepped into the second row for the 2010 World Cup and didn't look out of place, scoring a brace against Sweden. Since then she has grown into a world class back row.

    She is now a commanding presence at No 8 and is also a regular on the Sevens circuit for Wales.

    As a teenager she swam for Wales and also competed for Great Britain in surf lifesaving where she was a world record holder and double world champion. She then successfully transferred her talents to rowing where she represented Great Britain, including at the World championships - coming 4th and in the European Championships, where she claimed bronze.

    She grew up in Wales, studied at Loughborough university and moved to London when 23 to pursue her rowing career. Rebecca now teaches rowing, PE and geography at Sir William Perkins School in Surrey.
