Vastly-experienced Spanish international Patricia Garcia, has seen and done it all in her rugby career thus far. She previously represented club sides in Spain, France, New Zealand and Japan, before joining the Chiefs.
Garcia has won 42 caps for the Spanish national side, as well as appearing in 198 games over multiple 7s tournaments for her country. She has previously appeared at two Women’s World Cups in 15s and two in 7s, representing Spain at the 2016 Rio Olympics.
In 2018, she was named in the women’s HSBC Sevens World Series Dream Team.
Her experience of playing around the world, together with a proven skill-set, have been key in helping to develop a number of the younger players coming through at the Chiefs.
Now combining her playing career with a role heading up the Exeter Chiefs Centre of Excellence, Garcia's unrivalled knowledge and love of the game will prove crucial in bringing through the next generation of talent for Susie Appleby's side.
Away from rugby, Garcia has also set up her own charity, PGR NGO, which aims to promote social education and values through rugby.
