|Rugby union career|
Hunter began playing rugby league as a 9-year-old at Goathland Primary School, playing for the Longbenton and Gateshead Panthers. She eventually quit rugby league due to lack of opposition with rugby league heartland being along the M62 Corridor and not in Newcastle. Eventually, she found her feet in rugby union at age 15. Hunter captained the English team in their three-Test tour of New Zealand in July 2013  and at the 2014 Women's Six Nations Championship.
In 2017 she took England to the final with a team that included Sarah Bern, Megan Jones, and Emily Scarratt. The final against the New Zealand women's national rugby union team was (to be) broadcast by ITV on a Saturday night.
