Bryony Cleall is set to make her first appearance in almost a year as Saracens Women face Richmond Women on Saturday 15 February (KO 14H30) at Richmond Athletic Ground.

The front rower has been named on the bench and could make her long-awaited return from injury after suffering a broken fibula against Loughborough Lightning in March 2019.

She is joined among the replacements by her sister Poppy as well as fellow England internationals Vicky Fleetwood and Zoe Harrison.

Red Roses Hannah Botterman and Sarah McKenna are both in the starting XV at prop and fullback respectively.

Scotland international Jodie Rettie returns to the team as part of a new-look backrow alongside Kat Evans and Sonia Green.

Aine Staunton has been rewarded for her form with the Dev Team with a selection at outside centre, partnering Chantelle Miell in midfield.

Both sides were due to face off on Saturday 21 December 2019 but the match was postponed due to an unplayable pitch. Saracens hosted Richmond in round two of the current Tyrrells Premier 15s season, with the women in black coming out on top, 46 – 0.
