We know that they’ll have a strong pack and dangerous back three, so we’re expecting a hugely competitive match. It’s exciting to be live on Sky where we can showcase the best women’s talent in the country.”
Head Coach Rhys Edwards said:
” Winning last week was a great start to our season depsite a difficult ending to the match. Dealing with the pressure late on last week has given us added confidence that we can play under pressure. Saturday’s fixture has been one we’ve focused on since we saw it would be televised on the fixture list. It was always going to be a tough fixture to fight, in particular we didn’t play well away to Wasps last year so it’s an opportunity to keep momenutm building and make our mark in the competition. ”
