Her stellar performances and prolific boot contributed significantly to England's success, in a campaign that saw her notch up her 90th Test appearance.

2021 - Poppy Cleall: Cleall's exceptional abilities in the back row earned her rave reviews, and she was integral to England's triumph, including scoring the match-winning try on the final day against France. This time, it was a public vote that led to Cleall scooping the prize..
