England face Ireland women in Six Nations


Four members of Bristol Ladies have been included in the England side to face Ireland in Saturday’s Six Nations clash against Ireland at Ashbourne RFC (2pm KO).

Sophie Hemming returns to the matchday squad in the front row, while Kay Wilson, Amber Reed and Sally Tuson are named in the backline.

Head Coach Gary Street, whose side are defending Six Nations champions, said: “As always I want to rotate the squad and give players’ game time.

“We have brought in some real experience in the front row for Saturday’s game in Rochelle Clark and Sophie Hemming – who share 120 caps between them – whilst Sally Tuson has forced her way into the starting line-up with her powerful and try scoring efforts against Scotland.”
