England Women Training Squad for Loughborough Camp

England Women Elite Player Squad convened yesterday for a four-day training camp at Loughborough University.

Red Roses huddle at training

The camp will enable England to begin preparations for the upcoming Six Nations campaign and the Red Roses’ opening match against Italy on 4th February in the Stadio Mirabello (KO 17:30 GMT, Live Sky Sports).

Simon Middleton, England head coach said: “We want to continue to build on what was put in place for the Old Mutual Wealth Series, while at the same time get winning results. The Six Nations is a highly competitive tournament and the level of competition is tough.

We will have two camps between now and the first game on the 4th February to pick our strongest squad. In this training camp we will be looking to really test the players and for them to perform.”

England Women U20’s players Helena Rowland (Saracens Women) and Hannah Botterman (Saracens Women), who made her international debut against Canada last year both join the training squad. Charlotte Pearce (Loughborough Lightning), who took part in England’s extended training camp in October and also featured in the training games against South Africa, is included.

Shaunagh Brown (Harlequins Ladies), who earned her first international cap in the opening Old Mutual Wealth Series Test which saw England beat Canada 79-5, joins the squad as a newly appointed EPS player.

Middleton added: “Shaunagh has earned her place in the squad through delivering consistently outstanding performances in the Tyrrells Premier 15s and also on her international debut against Canada last year. We are delighted to have Shaunagh fully integrated into the squad as a named EPS player.”

Katy Daley-Mclean (Darlington Mowden Park Sharks) will miss the camp for personal reasons.

England Women squad will convene again on 22nd January for a final week-long training camp before a playing squad is selected ahead of the opening Test against Italy. England won the Six Nations in 2017 with their first Grand Slam since 2012.
