Saracens Women have named their side to face Wasps Ladies at Allianz Park on Saturday for the fourth round of the Tyrrells Premier 15s, kick off 14h00.
Rob Cain has made only one change to the starting side that ran in twelve tries in a big win away to Worcester Valkyries last weekend. Kay Searcy is promoted from the bench to fill the blindside flanker jersey and will partner Poppy Cleall and Marlie Packer, who scored an impressive half dozen on her debut, in the backrow.
At lock, Sonia Green will line-up alongside Valeria Fedrighi, whilst in the front row, Kat Evans starts at hooker flanked by Loz Salisbury at loosehead prop and Hannah Botterman at tighthead prop.
At half-back, last week’s Player of the Match Georgie Gulliver is named at scrum-half, with Zoe Harrison playing alongside her at fly-half. At centre, the Nina Vistisen and Helena Rowland continue their partnership, with the back three of captain Lotte Clapp and Garnet Mackinder on the wings and Rowan White at full-back.
Speaking ahead of the match, head coach Rob Cain said: “Wasps have been playing some exciting, aggressive ball carrying rugby and with their several high profile signings they will want to continue to see instant results and a climb up the league table.
“We have lots of positives to build on from last week and it’s going to be great to back at Allianz Park tomorrow. Our attacking intent continues to grow as does our recognition of each other’s strengths, and our work rate has been unquestionable off the ball.
“The key for us is to keep focusing on what we want, when we want it and to keep working hard to make those things materialise in real time.”
Tickets for the Saracens Women v Wasps Ladies match will be available to buy on the gate priced at £5/£3 under 12s, cash only. The game is free for season ticket holders.
Following their first win of the new competition last weekend versus DMP Sharks, Wasps FC Ladies are set to play London Rivals, Saracens this Saturday 7th October.
The game against DMP Sharks saw Wasps dominate in the first half with 5 tries, including two from England Rugby Legend Rocky Clark and one from new team member and Red Rose, Harriet Millar-Mills. Captain Kate Alder and winger Abby Dow also took the ball across the line leaving Wasps with 32 points on the board. Despite DMP Shark’s valiant come back in the second half, they fell short of the win by 4 points.
Saracen’s also secured a major win last week ending their game 74 points up on Worcester Valkyries. However, not letting this dampen their sting and with a similar line up to last week, Wasps FC Ladies are looking for that second win. We see Hannah Edwards and Nic Smith back in the starting line- up at full back and no.6 respectively, we also see the return of Alice Sheffield to the field at 7. Last, but by no means least, is the debut appearance for Danielle Waterman, returning to the game after her World Cup performance.
Its set to be a good match and Director of Rugby, Giselle Mather, is looking forward to the game –
“With two well matched teams, it comes down to who performs on the day and this makes for exciting Rugby”
