Saracens Women name Premiership side to face Wasps


Saracens Women have named their team to play Wasps Ladies in the rearranged Premiership Round 13 fixture at Allianz Park on Sunday, kick-off 13h00. 

The home side have already secured a top four play off place however the final two rounds of the league season could determine whether they go into the semi finals as third or fourth spot finishers.

Head coach Rob Cain has made some changes to the squad who fell to a Cup defeat in the final seconds to Aylesford Bulls last week. Nina Vistisen comes back in at outside centre to resume her midfield partnership with Charlotte Barras. Sarah McKenna moves to fullback and is joined in the back three by Garnet Mackinder and Emma Uren on the wings.

Last week’s half back pairing of Anna Goddard at scrumhalf and Zoe Harrison at flyhalf remains unchanged.

There is movement in the forward pack as Charlotte Hamlyn Williams gets a start at second row alongside Sonia Green. Blindside flanker Becky Roby is promoted off the bench to join Lauren Newman at openside flanker and captain Bryony Cleall at No.8.

Cain has kept his front row in tact with hooker Kat Evans flanked by loosehead prop Karlee Walters and Spanish tighthead prop Jeanina Vinueza Yoyola.

Speaking ahead of the match, Rob Cain said: “It’s great to be back at Allianz and hopefully we can show how much we learnt from last week’s disappointment. Wasps have been in great form and we expect a physical performance from them. If we can keep our accuracy levels high and mix that with our ability to find space, we will hopefully show how dangerous we can be with ball in hand.”
