Despite winning the world series on the second day of the HSBC Paris Sevens, Charlotte Caslick maintained her motivation to see out the tournament in record-breaking fashion by collecting the DHL Impact Player award for the tournament with the highest ever points.
Caslick was a key part in the series-winning outfit across the five rounds but in Paris shone brighter than anyone. Despite losing the tournament final 33-7 to New Zealand, Caslick notched up some incredible statistics, none more so than 35 carries and 32 tackles. She also added four breaks and one offload to her overall tally of 72.
"I'm so proud of the girls, that was an awesome effort and congratulations to New Zealand on an awesome final," said Caslick. "We didn't have enough to win it but that experience gained will be vital going in the World Cup in July."
Overall in the DHL Performance Tracker, which takes into account all five rounds on the world series, it was New Zealand's Michaela Blyde who took the honours with a staggering total of 229, finishing eight points clear of Japan's Chiharu Nakamura. Blyde, who scored a double in the final in Paris to take gold for New Zealand, made 58 tackles, 44 breaks, 20 offloads and 107 carries to take first place overall.
Nakamura, finished up on 221 points, making 64 tackles, 15 breaks, 41 offloads and 101 carries. In joint third was France's Camille Grassineau and Ireland's Lucy Mulhall.
