Introducing | Meg Jones

Figure image

Meg Jones is a remarkable rugby player, with a CV to match anyone's across the women's game.

A Premiership stalwart, an established England international, the co-captain for Team GB 7s, an Olympian. 

Now a Tiger, Jones finds herself starting this Sunday's game against Exeter Chiefs at outside-centre, having starred there for the Red Roses in WXV action over the Autumn.

Scoring a try in the side's opening round victory over Australia and featuring throughout as the side lifted the inaugural trophy, the playmaker finds herself back in the East-Midlands ahead of the Tigers first-ever Allianz Premiership Women's Rugby fixture.

Jones is a player who's used to the bright lights; she started the 2017 Rugby World Cup final at just 21 years old.

"You definitely get caught up in it. I was trying to take it my stride, feeding off all these amazing people; Emily Scarratt, Katy Daley-McLean, Natasha 'Mo' Hunt, all these amazing figures I could look up to.

"I look back and, although I'm proud of this amazing achievement I'm all about going onto the next thing, that's what keeps you diligent and driven in what you do.

"In terms of how I've changed, patience would be a key thing. I still don't have a lot of it but it's definitely grown in small increments!

"Also that empathy side; trying to bring people up with me, not just trying to be my own person but how I can try and inspire others aswell".

Watch the full video below, to see how the Red Rose was inspired by 'The Last Dance', her competitive drive and transitioning between 7s and 15s.
