Jodie Cunningham - Women's Ambassador
St Helens and England loose forward Jodie Cunningham is RLWC2021's Women's Ambassador.
The inspirational 30-year-old, who was named Woman of Steel for her form during Saints' treble-winning 2021 season, has represented England in two World Cups. At RLWC2017, she was part of the Lionesses side that made it to the semi-final, after battling back from a cruciate ligament injury suffered just six months prior to the tournament.
Alongside her exploits on the pitch, Jodie works full-time at the Rugby Football League as National Women’s and Girls’ Development Manager, playing a leading role in delivering the RFL's Women's and Girls Framework for 2022-30.
Jodie is also a huge advocate for Rugby League and women’s sport in general. In April 2021, she was selected to take part in The Women’s Sport Trust Unlocked programme to help improve diversity in sport.
