Mason And Miell Included In England Sevens Squad

Katie Mason and Chantelle Miell have been included in England Women's Sevens squad ahead of the penultimate leg of the World Rugby HSBC Women’s Sevens Series.

Drawn in Pool A, England face USA, Netherlands and New Zealand in the opening stages.
 
Assistant Coach James Bailey said: "It’s exciting to see how the squad has developed over the course of this season. With so many players having made their debuts on the World Series this year, we want to continue to give them opportunities to progress, learn and build experience as we pursue our overall goal to earn qualification for the World Cup next year."
 
Bailey has appointed Team GB Olympian Alice Richardson-Watmore as captain of the side for Langford, with Abbie Brown unavailable for selection due to injury.

Going into this fifth leg of the six-tournament series, England sit in eighth place in the overall standings, two points behind France and ten points above Ireland.

The top four teams from the HSBC World Rugby Women's Sevens Series, not including the four pre-qualified teams, will earn their place in the Women’s Sevens World Cup in San Francisco in July 2018. Eight more teams, including two European, will qualify through the regional championship placings.
