England Women name squad for training camp

England Women Head Coach Simon Middleton has named an extended training squad to take part in a camp in Bisham Abbey this weekend.

Poppy Leitch, Jessie Hood, Abbie Parsons, Izzy Noel-Smith, Amber Reed, Lagi Tuima, Lucy Attwood and Brooke Bradley are all named in the 43-person squad.

The camp will provide a chance for the squad to come together for the first time following the Womens Rugby World Cup in August and begin preparations ahead of the Old Mutual Wealth Series that will see England play Canada in a three Test series. 

Simon Middleton said: “This year we are doing things differently and bringing together an extended training squad of 43 players with the objective being twofold; firstly to allow us to select the strongest squad for the upcoming season and secondly give new talent invaluable playing opportunities as part of an international training team in games against South Africa. Off the back of the training camp and training games we’ll reduce the extended training squad numbers and name an EPS squad, who we feel is right for the upcoming season.
 
“We are really excited about the new, young players coming into camp for the first time. We know and have seen players in the past who have made unbelievable gains, when you get them in the right environment at the right time."
