Red Roses to Play Canada At Stonex Stadium, London

Englands women's national rugby team, The Red Roses’ second match of their two-Test series with Canada Women in September will be played at Saracens’ StoneX Stadium.

Taking place on Saturday, 30 September. The fixture will conclude the side’s preparations for the inaugural WXV tournament to be held in New Zealand this autumn.

StoneX Stadium last hosted a Red Roses match in November 2018 with the world’s most-capped women’s player, Sarah Hunter, on the scoresheet in a 57-5 victory over USA.

Now England Women transition coach, Hunter commented: “StoneX Stadium has fantastic facilities and is a great venue to play rugby.

“The passion and appetite for women’s rugby in this country has vastly grown since our last match at Saracens. We hope that growth will continue in front of a big north London crowd against strong opposition.”

Lucy Wray, Saracens Chief Executive, added: “Everyone at Saracens is incredibly excited to host a Red Roses international match at StoneX Stadium.

“It will be amazing to see our own Red Roses representing their country against Canada, where Saracens are also represented by our recent signings Emma Taylor, McKinley Hunt and Sophie de Goede.

“This is such a fantastic opportunity for all the Sarries fans and our partner clubs and schools to come and watch such brilliantly talented players up close.”

Priority Tickets for the fixture at StoneX Stadium are now available to O2 and Virgin Media customers before going on general sale on Friday, 28 July.
