England stars Emily Scarratt, Harriet Millar-Mills and Tamara Taylor have been nominated for the 02 England Women’s Player of the Year. The trio were integral to the Red Roses’ Six Nations campaign as they swept aside all-comers to claim their first Grand Slam title since 2012.

Scarratt scored 49 points during the campaign, including two tries, and her strong running and passing set up many more. Millar-Mills was also impressive around the park, her barnstorming runs leaving defences in shreds. Taylor, meanwhile, passed 100 caps during the tournament, and her command of the driving maul, as well as her commitment in defence, was key for the Red Roses.

All three started each of England’s Six Nations matches and are thoroughly deserving of their nominations.

The winner will be announced at the the RPA Players’ Awards on Wednesday 10 May at Battersea Evolution, London.
