2015 Bio:

Gwynne is a player that offers more than just brawn. In receipt of a bulldozing leg drive and fend, Gwynne is also a smart-thinker, as such, this Lions’ Lineman can flip between preserve-and-protect to seek-and-destroy on a dime. Combine this with her desire to continually improve and you can see why this Lion is one of our jewels in the crown. A player who leads by example Gwynne was deservedly made an on-field captain recently for Great Britain’s European qualifier against Russia.

2014 Bio:

Another player that took one for the team this season – a GB Nose Tackle last summer – Michelle moved over to the offence to cover Centre in light of injuries and absence. Adapting quickly, this popular character fast became a force to be reckoned with, in both run and pass-protect mode, and on the move, this power-house was simply unstoppable and unbeatable; always one to watch.
