Saracens Women Name Team To Face Richmond

Saracens Women name squad to face Richmond 

Rob Cain has named his side to face Richmond Ladies in round nine of the Women's Premiership on Sunday at Richmond Athletic Ground, 14h15 kick off. 

Claire Allan and Emily Scott return from a successful autumn series with England to feature on the wing and fullback. Emma Uren joins Allan on the opposite wing whilst last week's centre partnership of Charlotte Barras and Nina Vistisen continues. The half back pairing of April Brown and Zoe Harrison remains unchanged. 

In the pack, Kat Robinson moves into blindside flanker alongside openside Lauren Newman and number 8 Bryony Cleall. Marcella Collins starts at lock and is joined by skipper Sonia Green. In the front row, El Perry comes in at loosehead prop and is joined by hooker Geri Thomas and Karlee Walters at tighthead prop. 

Speaking ahead of the match, head coach Rob Cain said "If we can keep building on what we have managed to start to do over the last four weeks we have a big opportunity to go to Richmond and get the performance that we want. Richmond have lots of threats and their set piece is very dangerous. We must have more discipline than last week, otherwise we could be playing into their hands. From our point, combinations are starting to have clarity and we continue to develop into a team that are beginning to look dangerous with the ball in hand, making accurate decisions  under pressure. Hopefully we can kick on again from last week and keep our momentum going."
