Being gay is not something that defines Hannah Botterman, she just want to be Hannah Botterman. The Red Roses and Saracens prop opens about about her relationship to club and international team mate Holly Aitchison, her unusual route to Test rugby via eating pasties while working as a painter and decorator and her family relationships. She also discusses why she never thought she had to 'come out', how she initially felt unprepared for international rugby and how she embraces being a role model.
In this pod, you will also hear from Holly speaking about the long journey to took for them to end up as a couple, as well as from England head coach Simon Middleton, fellow Red Roses' Jess Breach and Sadia Kabeya, and Hannah's old boss when she worked as a painter and decorator.
