The most capped rugby player in international history has joined Bedford Modern School (BMS) as a permanent member of their coaching staff.
Rochelle ‘Rocky’ Clark MBE, who currently plays as a forward for Saracens ladies rugby club, was part of the winning 2014 rugby World Cup squad and was awarded an MBE for services to rugby in 2015.
She holds 137 caps for England, more than any other player, male or female, in history.
“We are extremely fortunate to add someone with Rocky’s experience, knowledge and coaching pedigree to our department,” said Director of Sport at BMS, Simon Sinclair.
“She has already made an impact on both students and staff, and we are looking forward to her contribution with rugby and other sports throughout the year.”
Rocky joins former Tonga international Soane Tongaʻuiha, as well as contributing to the School’s partnerships with Bedford Blues and Northampton Saints.
Speaking about her new position at the school, Rocky said: “I’m delighted to be a part of the illustrious BMS set-up.
“The School has fantastic students, staff and facilities and I’m looking forward to the challenge of developing players and the rugby culture.”
