Bears Women duo named in Red Roses squad

Lucy Attwood and Ellie Mulhearn have been named in Simon Middleton's Red Roses squad for the three-Test Quilter Internationals this November.

The duo are two of seven uncapped players included in the 28 player squad, all of which featured in England Women U20’s summer tour to Canada. 

The Red Roses play USA, Canada and Ireland in the three-Test series at Allianz Park, Castle Park and Twickenham Stadium this November with every game available live on Sky Sports

England Women open their campaign against USA at Allianz Park on Friday 9 November.
 
“As a group, we are really looking forward to getting the Quilter Internationals underway and performing to our maximum," said Middleton.

“We have made a number of changes within the squad, with 12 new faces named since the 2018 Six Nations. While there is a great feel of youthfulness, with seven players fresh from the Under 20’s summer tour, we have critically been able to retain a number of world class performers from the 2017 Women’s Rugby World Cup, ensuring an essential balance of quality, youth and experience.

“As we start our journey towards the 2021 World Cup, the focus over the Quilter Internationals is not only on winning but performance. We have reshaped our game and we will be looking to see which players can bring the plan to life in the intensity of an international match environment. 

"With full-time contracts on the horizon and a great season of international rugby in front of us, the challenge and opportunity is there for individuals to stake their claim as a Red Rose.”
 
Three Bristol Bears Women players, Sarah Bern, Lagi Tuima, and Amber Reed, are unavailable through injury.
