ABOUT RICHMOND WOMEN
Richmond Women head into the clash with Saracens Women off the back of three straight wins in the Tyrrells Premier 15s.
Last weekend they beat Worcester Valkyries 21-15 which followed victories against Firwood Waterloo and Bristol Bears Women – a run of results which lifts them up to seventh in the table, the same position they occupied at the end of last season.
When the Women in Black travelled to Richmond in September, they were 12-5 down at half-time but came back in the second half to win 30-12 with an injury-depleted team.
This time it is Richmond who have some injury concerns, with their influential hooker Alice Soper out for an extended spell. However, centre Kirsty Lee-Griffiths has recently returned from to the team, and they have Rowena Burnfield, who recently captained the England National Academy team, back at lock.
