Bristol Ladies Duo Set For England Start

Abigail Brown and Sydney Gregson have been named in England's starting line up for the Six Nations opener versus Wales.

England - who are aiming for their first Six Nations crown since 2012 - face Wales in Swansea on Sunday.

Wing Gregson and centre Brown are set for their international debuts ahead of the competition opener.

"This season is the start of a new World Cup cycle for us, so the Six Nations is an opportunity for us to bring on a number of new players. We have got some really exciting young players coming through who will learn a lot from this experience," said acting head coach Nicola Ponsford.

"[New caps] Hannah Field, Abbie Brown and Sydney Gregson have all played international sevens so they already have some experience under their belts."
