The Red Roses have named their team ahead of their opening Six Nations match against Italy on Sunday as they look to defend their crown.
In the backs, the experience of fly half Katy Daley-McLean and centre Rachael Burford is complimented by the fresh faces of Ellie Kildunne and Abigail Dow, who both made their international debuts against Canada in the autumn. Danielle Waterman starts on the wing and Lauren Cattell, who last featured for the Red Roses in 2016, is named at outside centre.
Three centurions are set to start in the forwards – Rocky Clark, Tamara Taylor and captain Sarah Hunter provide plenty of experience and are key breakdown operators, while prop Sarah Bern, lock Poppy Cleall and flanker Marlie Packer provide strong running options for the Red Roses.
On the bench, the likes of Amy Cokayne and Izzy Noel-Smith will be looking to exploit a tiring Italian defence with their bullocking runs, while Zoe Harrison and Caity Mattinson will want to build on the positive impressions they made in the autumn. Joining them on the bench is Charlotte Pierce, who will win her first international cap if called upon.
The game is live on Sky Sports Action and Sky Sports Mix.
