Sarah Bern started her international career with England U20 as a back row forward, but has since converted to prop where she has thrived.
After earning England U20 recognition in 2015, Sarah stepped up to full Test level against France and the USA during the International Women’s Rugby Series in 2016. At the 2017 Women’s Rugby World Cup, Sarah started in four of England’s five games, including the final in Belfast against New Zealand. In the 2019 Women’s Six Nations she started all of England’s games, scoring five tries, as they won the Grand Slam.
Her performances during the 2018/19 season saw her voted as the England Women’s Player of the Year. In the summer, Sarah represented the Red Roses at the 2019 Super Series. In November, she was shortlisted for World Rugby’s Women’s Player of the Year award and has featured in all of England’s 2019/20 matches to date.
