Saracens Women name cup squad to face Bath Ladies


Saracens Women have named their team to face Bath Ladies in the second round of the Senior Cup at Allianz Park on Sunday, kick-off 14H00.

The pack is littered with experience as Lauren Newman returns to start at open side flanker alongside Kay Searcy at No.8 and Bronwen Jackson-Turner at blind side flanker. Anna Stodter captains the side from the second row partnering with Kat Josephides. May Campbell who made her first appearance after seventeen months out injured off the bench in last week’s Premier 15s match, starts at hooker. She’s joined in the front row by Sarah Barber at loosehead prop and Jude Stephenson at tighthead prop.

There’s experience in the half backs as Georgie Gulliver returns after a layoff to start at scrum half partnering with April Brown at fly half.

Chrissy Siczowa features at outside centre after being away with the UK Armed Forces team and lines up alongside Sarah Bebbington who is named at inside centre. There’s pace in back three as Izzy Carrol and Eloise Bloomfield own the wing jerseys with Liz Dorey rounding off the squad at full back.

Speaking ahead of the match, head coach Rob Cain said: “With 13 players away either on international duty or at camp it’s great for the whole playing squad to have an opportunity to press their claim for selection over the coming weeks. We have a great mix of talent on show and I am excited to see lots of different combinations and individuals showcase themselves against what we know will be a physical Bath team.
