Wales Women name side for England showdown

Wales Women’s senior team head coach Ioan Cunningham has selected his side for the Round 3 fixture in the Six Nations against England at Cardiff Arms Park, on Saturday, April 15th (KO: 2.15pm).

Centre Hannah Jones will captain the side in front of record sell-out crowd of more than 8,000 in the Welsh capital for the visit of England’s Red Roses.

Lowri Norkett comes in on the wing to replace Carys Wiliams-Morris, who is away playing for the RAF in the Inter Services rugby championship while Hannah Bluck replaces centre Kerin Lake in the midfield in one of two changes to the side that beat Scotland 34-22 in Edinburgh.

Lake has suffered an ankle injury and is being assessed.

Uncapped backrower Bryonie King comes in on the bench, which sees a six-two split, and she looks set to become Wales’ second new cap during the 2023 tournament.
