Four Bears named in Red Roses squad

The Red Roses will take on Wales at Ashton Gate on Wednesday, 14th September. Tickets and hospitably are on sale now, click here to purchase. 

After three camps at the University of Bath throughout July, the team will now continue with their preparations for New Zealand throughout August (starting from today, 1 August) with camps at Pennyhill Park. Head coach Simon Middleton said: “We had a good few weeks in Bath where fitness and conditioning work along with skill development was a real focus as well as wider team building. “Detysha (Harper) joined us mid-way through our camps in Bath and will remain with the group for this next block.“We’re also really pleased to bring Laura Keates back in. She is a world-class tight-head prop with vast experience and will add a huge amount of quality to our front row.“This next period is essential in our preparations as we aim to become match ready and prepare for games against the USA and Wales in just over a month’s time.”
