Saracens Women name team to face Bristol Ladies 2XV


Saracens Women have named their team to travel to Bristol Ladies in Sunday’s Tyrrells Premier 15s 2XV match at Melksham RFC, kick-off 14H00.

Anna Stodter returns to captain the squad from the second row alongside Dutch international Tessa Wijmans. Scarlett Copper-Wall starts at hooker with Jude Stephenson and Sarah Barber in the front row. Cain has named a physical back row with Rosie Galligan and Harriet Austin on the flanks and Charlotte Fredrickson at no.8.

Garnet Mackinder starts on the wing lining up alongside Eloise Bloomfield and Georgie Lingham in the back three. Sarah Bebbington and Emma Uren combine in the centres with Emma Swords named as fly half partnering with Anna Goddard at scrum half.

Speaking ahead of the match, head coach Rob Cain said: “This weekend is a great opportunity for the players to crack open the door for next week’s Prem squad but our main focus is to pick up where we left off against Quins, adding consistency to both our accuracy and awareness to play what is in front of us. Bristol are very physical and dangerous when they break from turnover ball so we will need to closely manage that. It’s great to have Leonie and May back from injury and I’m looking forward to seeing both Emma and Garnet play alongside each other as a combination..”
