Competing at the highest levels Jo has played at the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games representing Great Britain and continues to compete for the England Masters team on the international stage.

Jo brings with her huge knowledge and experience within performance squads, and is a real signal of the intent we have as a performance group and our club wide initatives. I am looking forward to an exciting and successful season ahead!”
