As the 2021 Women's Six Nations is set to begin, we move our attention to the Red Roses as Hannah Botterman and Poppy Cleall join Dylan Hartley on England Rugby Podcast: O2 Inside Line.

The pair talk about where their friendship began in camp and how that has flourished into creating their own Instagram show, complete with challenges during lockdown, as well as bonding over food. The pair also recall their first England starts, ranging from stories about unexpected late call-ups and then initially struggling with Test rugby, to what it's like when you're dropped so early on in your England career. We also hear their jobs working as a prison officer and a painter and decorator before they became full-time professionals. You will also learn about previous rugby internationals that Hannah is related to and find out which England player Poppy has the autograph of and later ended up playing alongside.

Throughout the Women's Six Nations the pod will continue so make sure you're subscribed for the latest episodes. Don't forget that leaving a review on Apple podcasts gives you the chance of winning a signed England shirt from the men's squad.
