Four players named in Street's squad

Four members of Bristol Ladies have been included in England Women's 26-person squad ahead of the Rugby World Cup in Paris in August.

Amber Reed, Kay Wilson, Danielle Waterman and Sophie Hemming have all been included in Gary Street's squad.

Street said: “This is a really exciting and strong squad into a World Cup. We’ll be heading to France in a strong position. For several players there is disappointment as they haven’t made the squad, but they are world class players who have been a very important part of this process.

“We have a good balance of new, fresh players hungry for their first World Cup experience but also several more experienced heads."

England’s WRWC campaign gets underway on August 1 against Samoa before taking on Spain on August 5 and Canada on August 9. All the pool games will be played at Marcoussis in Paris and the semi-finals and final, on August 13 and 17 respectively, will be staged at Stade Jean Bouin.
