Golden Girls on Tour

The game against the Pumas on Saturday in San Juan isn’t the first tour match for an England team this week.

On Friday England women will play Australia in Wellington – it’s at 1.30am our time and I’m not sure if it’s being televised, although I suspect not.

They will also play Canada on June 13th and then New Zealand on June 17th – the last game being a curtain-raiser for the British Lions game against the Maori All Blacks.

The tour will help head coach Simon Middleton to prepare his team for the defence of the Women’s World Cup which will take place in Ireland in August.

The tour squad is –

Sarah Bern (Bristol), Emily Braund (Lichfield), Rochelle Clark (Worcester Valkyries), Amy Cokayne (Lichfield), Vickii Cornborough (Aylesford Bulls), Vicky Fleetwood (Saracens), Sarah Hunter (Bristol), Heather Kerr (Darlington Mowden Park Sharks), Justine Lucas (Lichfield), Alex Matthews (Richmond), Harriet Millar-Mills (Lichfield), Izzy Noel-Smith (Bristol), Marlie Packer (Bristol), Abbie Scott (Darlington Mowden Park Sharks), Tamara Taylor (Darlington Mowden Park Sharks)

Rachael Burford (Aylesford Bulls), Natasha Hunt (Lichfield), Megan Jones (Bristol), La Toya Mason (Darlington Mowden Park Sharks), Sarah McKenna (Saracens), Katy Mclean (Darlington Mowden Park Sharks), Amber Reed (Bristol), Leanne Riley (Aylesford Bulls), Emily Scarratt (Lichfield), Emily Scott (Saracens), Lydia Thompson (Worcester Valkyries), Danielle Waterman (Bristol), Kay Wilson (Richmond)

A number of players, including Laara Keates and Amy Wilson-Hardy  were unavailable because of injury.

Hopefully the game against NZ at least will be broadcast on TV (KO 5.30am BST)
