Rachel Ann Malcolm made her Scotland Women debut as a replacement in the first Women's Rugby World Cup Qualifier against Spain at Scotstoun Stadium in November 2016.
She took up rugby in 2015 and plays for Lichfield. Malcolm is currently completing her PhD in environmental physiology, and has a sports and exercise science bachelors degree, and a masters degree in exercise physiology.
Uncapped Malcolm looks to create her own connections to Scottish rugby, but is also connected through older brother Donald who is a former Scotland U19 international representative. Her younger brother James has also represented Scotland at U18 and U20 level, and is now signed with Glasgow Warriors.
Outside of rugby, Malcolm has represented Scotland at U17, U18 and U21 hockey.
