Maggie Alphonsi MBE
England Rugby captain, world cup winner and BBC commentator
Maggie Alphonsi is the face of international women’s rugby and arguably one of the most well-known names in women’s team sports on the planet. Before announcing her international retirement in 2014, she represented her country an impressive 74 times, scored 28 tries, and helped England win the Rugby World Cup in 2014. Through her England rugby career she has become a household rugby name but also a media professional, and since retiring she has commentated on live rugby matches for SKY Sports and the BBC.
In 2015 she became the first ever former female player to commentate on men’s international rugby when she was signed up by ITV for the Rugby World Cup, and now she is working for ITV Sport on their RBS 6 Nations coverage.
Maggie’s insight into teamwork, diversity and what it takes to win, will inspire your audience.
