Bern selected for Le Crunch

Sarah Bern has been named in the Red Roses squad that will be looking for back-to-back wins over France when they face off at Sandy Park on Saturday afternoon. 

The Red Roses name the same 23-player group that secured an impressive 20-10 victory over Les Bleues at the Stade de Michelin in Clemont-Ferrand last weekend. 

They will now fine-tune their preparations in Devon ahead of the game, live on Sky Sports Mix and Action.

Middleton said: “We were delighted to secure our first win in France since 2012. The players put a real shift in and stuck to the plan and we've have had a good week’s recovery and preparation, which we will now complete in Devon.

“As we expected, last week’s game was incredibly competitive, while at the same time, it was clear to see that both sides hadn’t played competitively for a couple of months. However, I expect both teams to have shaken off some of the ring rust this week and the skill execution should be evident in the performances."

15. Sarah McKenna, 14. Lydia Thompson,13. Emily Scarratt, 12. Zoe Harrison, 11. Abby Dow, 10 Katy Daley-Mclean, 9 Leanne Riley;1. Hannah Botterman, 2. Lark Davies, 3. Sarah Bern, 4. Zoe Aldcroft, 5. Abbie Scott, 6. Sarah Beckett, 7. Marlie Packer, 8 Sarah Hunter (C)
