'As soon as I knew she was in the squad I thought I have to make this special,' Enya told BBC Sport.
'I know rugby people are amazing and they would embrace it,' she added, and claimed she had not been nervous about popping the question so publicly to her partner of two years.
'She is the love of my life,' she said.

'The Olympic Games can look like closure but for me it's starting a new life with someone,' said Enya. 'I wanted to show people that love wins.'
