Richmond Women Name Squad To Face Gloucester-Hartpury


Richmond Women have named their squad to face Gloucester-Hartpury Women in tomorrow’s Tyrrells Premier 15s fixture at the Alpas Arena (KO 4:30pm).

Following last Saturday’s impressive 35-8 bonus point victory over Worcester, Richmond have made just the one change to their 22-player squad, with prop Jazmin Wones replacing Hannah Luff on the replacements bench.

For the first time this season, the starting forward pack remains completely unchanged, with the likes of Alex Zdunek, Hallie Taufoou and Libby Povey rewarded for a strong performance against Worcester. While across the backs, Freya Aucken and Vicki Jackson continue their halves combination and Ellie Boatman will again start in the 13 shirt following her two tries last week.

Richmond Women’s Coach Nic Evans said: “We have been extremely impressed by the way the squad has trained this week. Coming off a great win over Worcester, the confidence levels are high and we’re looking forward to another big challenge against Gloucester. We know they’re a really organised side, they’ve got great structure in how they play, and they like to throw the ball about. We’re going to have to be really switched on in defence and match them physically up front.”

Richmond Women continue their 2019/20 Tyrrells Premier 15s season against Gloucester-Hartpury Women tomorrow afternoon (Kick-off 4:30pm).
