“The international call was really surprising.

“It felt like a reward for all the hard work I have done all season and I was really excited and looking forward to the challenge.

“I hope I get called up again soon and have the chance to play an international game… the USA have a few games in the summer. I am hoping I will be selected for them, so I will tick over in the gym and keep myself fit just in case.”
