I'd heard about Jaz long before I had the good fortune of watching all the hype in person at the Commonwealth Games in Australia. With electrifying speed, a step most could only dream of and a tackle well beyond her size, she definitely did not disappoint. Jaz went onto score all bar one of Wales’ tries in the whole tournament and was electric every time she touched the ball.
The highlight has to have been watching her chase an opposition 40m who was well clear of scoring, only to be brought down 2m from the line. Even the opposition’s fans were cheering as they couldn’t believe what they had just witnessed!
Jaz has represented Wales at the World Cup, 6 Nations and Commonwealth Games, plus was the only non English player in the GB Olympic team in Rio. It is no surprise that we cannot wait to support her as her career continues to go from strength to strength.
Nothing can stop her. Literally.
