Rugby League-England women's international Harrowell dies at 29

England women's international forward Natalie Harrowell has died at the age of 29, her club Featherstone Rovers and the Rugby Football League announced in a statement on Tuesday.

"This is tragic news," Rugby Football League chief executive Ralph Rimmer said. "I know all involved in rugby league will join me in sending their deepest sympathy to Natalie's family, friends and team mates."

The statement added: "Natalie was very passionate about women's rugby league and growing the sport, especially getting more young girls involved, having recently taken on a development role at Wakefield Trinity. "Our thoughts and condolences are with Natalie's young daughter Olivia and the rest of her family at this sad time."
