Six Saracens Women selected for England
Six Saracens players have been named in the England Women Elite Player Squad (EPS) squad for the 2015/16 season.
Following a successful season helping Saracens to claim the historic league and cup double, Sevens players Vicky Fleetwood and Sarah McKenna are joined by teammates Hannah Gallagher and Leanne Riley. The 51-strong EPS sees six new players called up, although only two players are uncapped at international level including Saracens, Zira Handley who has impressed in the Premiership and finished top try scorer for the club last season. Lauren Cattell has also been drafted into the squad following her inclusion in last season's Six Nations campaign.
The EPS will prepare for two autumn internationals fixtures in November (details to be announced) as well as the Six Nations championship and the HSBC Sevens World Series.
