The 60 second interview: Sarah Ulmer

What do you really know about the world's leading women's players? Very little? Well neither do we. So in a bid to redress the balance we've introduced the 60-second interview, where top players answer our questions in our bid to get to know them just that little bit better. First up it's Canada's Sarah Ulmer who lets slip that she supports England's Cricket team and tells us the household chore that she would run 10 laps to avoid doing.

An interesting fact about yourself: I'm not that interesting unfortunately...

If you could change one rugby rule what would it be? Matching numbers in the lineout, I thought that was a ELV and was surprised it didn't stick, Its a silly free kick to give up.

Best rugby moment? The first time I made the World Cup team for Canada, that phone call was amazing

And the worst? Losing to England in the semi final of the 2006 World Cup, we were so close but couldn't finish it. It was so disheartening with the what ifs...
