Red Roses name team ahead of Wales clash

The Red Roses have named an unchanged match-day squad as they prepare to face Wales in the second round of the 6 Nations on Saturday.

After last week’s 26 – 13 win against France, head coach Simon Middleton said: “I was pleased with the way we refocused at half time last week and the accuracy, discipline and execution of the game plan was far closer to the standards we are looking to achieve.”

It will be a day to remember for second row Tamara Taylor, as she is set to win her 100th cap. This is Taylor’s 10th 6 Nations tournament, and she and her team-mates will be hoping to celebrate her achievement with victory against a Wales side who have won their last five matches.

The game is available to watch on Sky Sports 3 and kicks off at 11:30am.
