Nolli Waterman

YST Nolli Waterman


After refusing to be left behind, Nolli was taken to the local rugby club with her two older brothers from the age of just four - and has not looked back since! Nolli played rugby with the boys until she was 12 years old, when RFU rules meant she had to find a girls team. After playing for the South West regional U16s squad, Nolli was propelled into senior rugby at the age of 15 when selected for the England Senior Academy and then the England ‘A’ squad. She went on to receive her first international cap at 18 and became England’s youngest-ever capped player.

Nolli has played both International 15s and Sevens for England over the past decade. Nolli achieved one of her childhood dreams in 2014, winning the IRB Women’s Rugby World Cup, scoring a try in the final against Canada. She also became an Olympian when Rugby Sevens took to the big stage at the Rio 2016 Olympics, with Team GB reaching the bronze medal match.
