Yeovil-born Marlie Packer left her West Country roots in Bristol to join Saracens at the beginning of the 2017/18 season and made an explosive impact, scoring six tries against Worcester Valkyries.

She was instrumental in the team winning the inaugural Tyrrells Premier 15s and she finished the season as the league’s top try scorer.

A World Cup winner in 2014 and a finalist in 2017, the flanker also featured in the Sevens World Cup in Moscow in 2013.

Her rugby career began as a five-year-old with Ivel Barbarians, where she spent 13 years. Marlie then moved to Bath before joining Bristol in 2009.

Schooled at Birchfield, Buckler’s Mead and Yeovil College, Packer worked as a plumbing & heating engineer for Homeserve, who she credits with being extremely supportive of her rugby career.
