Bern and Reed named in Red Roses squad

Bristol Bears Women duo Sarah Bern and Amber Reed have been included in the Red Roses squad for their rescheduled Six Nations fixture against Italy.

The Red Roses were crowned winners of this year’s tournament following Scotland’s draw with France on Sunday and head to Italy targeting a successive Grand Slam.
 
The match takes place on Sunday, November 1st  (5pm KO GMT) at Stadio Sergio Lanfranchi, live on Sky Sports Arena and also available to view on  free-to-air on the Sky Sports YouTube channel.  

The group will assemble on Wednesday before flying to Italy on Friday. They then face a two-test series against France to complete their autumn schedule(14th and 21st November).
 
Simon Middleton said: “We’re really looking forward to our final Six Nations game against Italy where we’re targeting the Grand Slam.
 
“We’ve had a number of short camps in recent weeks which have given us an opportunity to work with lots of players.

“It’s great to be preparing for a match again and we can’t wait to take to the field.”
