Rugby World Magazine's 'One Game at a Time' - Kat Merchant
In this episode, Sam Roberts speaks to Katherine Merchant, the England winger who played 58 times for the Red Roses over a nine year period, scoring 44 tries. We look back at the critical semi-final from the 2014 Women's Rugby World Cup against Ireland, the scene of Kat's final international try. We discuss try scoring, handoffs, being beaten in finals and having stadiums boo you.
We watch the highlights of the game from the World Rugby YouTube channel and you can watch along too by following this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hYo5Nahgir4&t=176s
Kat shines a great light on top level sport, performing under pressure and women's rugby as a whole. It was lovely to hear her story and how England went on to lift the World Cup trophy.
