Bryony Cleall began playing rugby at an after-school club when she was seven, and she went on to Ellingwood & Ringwood RFC with brief spells at Salisbury and Wimborne.
Norwich-born Cleall attended Burgate School and Sixth Form in Hampshire, then studied Sports Science and Geography at Loughborough University.
At the age of 17, she suffered a serious knee injury which prevented her from playing for five years, and it was not until she continued her education with a Masters at Exeter University in 2015 that she started playing under Jo Yapp, the former England scrum-half and captain.
Cleall’s form in 2018/19 saw her earn her first England cap during the 2019 Women’s Six Nations.
