Alia McCarthy first picked up a rugby ball aged 5, at Streatham and Croydon RFC, where her dad was a coach.
She played youth rugby for Surrey at U18 level, returning to Streatham and Croydon after six years to play her first game for their newly established women's team.
McCarthy has since moved to Exeter from London, whilst she continues her apprenticeship as a chef, giving her the opportunity to be part of the Chiefs setup this season.
Away from the game, she enjoys hiking and bike rides, and aspires to join the RAF in some capacity in the future.
