Saracens Women name side for Cup Final


Saracens Women have named their side to face Richmond in Saturday’s National Cup Final at Lichfield RFC, kick-off 15h30.  

Sonia Green will captain the defending Cup champions team from No8 alongside blindside flanker, Poppy Cleall and Lauren Newman at openside flanker.

The front row remains unchanged from the win against DMP Sharks in the semi final as England U20 May Campbell (hooker) will join Spanish international prop Jeanni Vinueza Yoyola and Geri Thomas.

Scotland international Fi Sim returns for Saracens at lock and will pack down with Ellie Gattlin to make up the new dynamic second row pairing.

Rob Cain has mixed up the half back pairing as April Brown moves to scrum-half to replace the injured Georgie Gulliver and Brooke Sim steps in at fly-half.

In the backs, Georgia Peedle moves to inside centre with Nina Vistisen starting in the number 13 jersey. Charlotte Barras (full-back), Laura Dowsett (left wing) and Deborah Fleming (right wing) make up the Sarries back three.
