Saracens Women primed for Lichfield test


Saracens Women return to Allianz on Saturday for Round 4 of the Premiership against Midlands outfit, Lichfield Ladies.

The team remains largely unchanged from that which ran in an impressive 8 try win over Wasps last weekend. Centre Hannah Casey returns to the starting line-up and Canadian prop Karlee Walters makes her Premiership debut.

Saracens scrumhalf George Gulliver is relishing the opportunity to play against her old club.

“I’m really looking forward to Saturday’s game having moved from Lichfield to Saracens after playing 4 seasons with them” said Gulliver. “I always relish the challenge of playing against some of my old team mates, but have also noticed a fresh new look to this Lichfield side who seemed to have recruited well over the summer.

“There is a good vibe at Saracens at the moment we had a great preseason with a lot of hard work going on behind the scenes and in training, which has been very noticeable in the opening few games particularly in our London derby game last weekend against Wasps.

“We love playing out home games at Allianz Park but an opportunity to play a curtain raiser to the men’s game against Northampton adds something extra to this Saturday’s match day and we are hoping to deliver another strong performance.”
