Saracens Women name team to face Loughborough Lightning


Saracens Women have named their side to travel to Loughborough Lightning on Saturday for round eleven of the Tyrrells Premier 15s, kick off 12h00.

Georgie Lingham gets her first Premier 15s start as she’s named on the wing, alongside captain Lotte Clapp and Nina Vistisen in the back three. Cara Wardle returns to partner last week’s top points scorer Helena Rowland in the centres and scrum-half Georgie Gulliver resumes her half back pairing with fly-half Zoe Harrison.

In the forwards, Hannah Botterman comes back into the starting line up at tighthead prop and is joined by hooker Kat Evans and loosehead prop El Perry. Valeria Fedrighi and Sonia Green partner up at lock and Bryony Cleall, Marlie Packer and Poppy Cleall round off the back row.

Speaking ahead of the match, head coach Rob Cain said"Heading away to Loughborough is another good challenge for us. I think they are the most improved team from the first round and they have been on a good win streak so their confidence quite rightly will be high and they are very dangerous if allowed to have the ball in space and continuity in their attack. We want to end 2017 in a positive way and to do that we need to do the small things well and at the right time, on our terms.”
