Allianz Park to host England Women vs USA
Allianz Park will play host to England Women and USA on Friday 9th November (19H45 KO).
The Red Roses are taking their three-test Quilter International series on the road, facing Canada and Ireland at Castle Park and Twickenham respectively.
England head coach Simon Middleton said: “With no summer tour this year, the Quilter Internationals cannot come soon enough. The squad are raring to go and we couldn’t wish for a better start than against the USA.
“They are an international team on the rise, evidenced by their performance in the semi-final of last year’s Women’s Rugby World Cup.
“Like us, Canada and Ireland will be looking forward to continuing their evolution with new squads and coaching staff in place.
“We look forward to returning to Allianz Park for our opening game and are really excited to host a first women’s international in Yorkshire before returning to Twickenham which is always a great occasion.”
RFU Director of Professional Rugby Nigel Melville said: “This is an excellent opportunity to take the Red Roses to new audiences. Allianz Park has already proven itself a first class venue.”
Saracens Chairman Nigel Wray said: “Women’s sport is only going in one direction and that is massive growth. That’s why it’s a huge privilege for us to be hosting the national side, England, at Allianz Park against USA. I’m going to make sure I’m there!”.
