    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 verstatile Neath Athletic back can play either at full back or on the wing. She made her international debut against Scotland at Cross Keys in the 2012 Six Nations campaign - although it was her second appearance in the Welsh shirt - but the game against Ireland in the opening clash of the championship meant it didn't count as a capped appearance as it was abandoned at halftime due to the extreme pitch conditions.

    Her performances in the 2012 campaign was one of the major plus points of a rather disappointing tournament.

    The versatile Hallett initially started playing rugby at university because the netball team said she was too rough. She was inspired to play rugby by her nan who she vividly remembers screaming and yelling at the TV, too nervous to sit, too anxious to stand still during the halcyon days of the 70s. She grew up determined to make her nanny proud of her own rugby exploits.

    Hallett spent missed the 2011/12 Six Nations tournament as she spent a season playing rugby in New Zealand with Stoke in Nelson, before returning to Wales to lead her country to victory over Spain in a non-capped match prior to the 2012 Six Nations competition.

    The front rower is a good mover, as her UK A President/Laurel/Gold award for dancing would testify while in 2008 she won the Best Amateur Actress Award in the National Eisteddfod.

    After coming on as a replacement, Lowri scored on her debut in Wales's opening World Cup pool game defeat to Australia in the 2010 World Cup.

    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 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.
