Preview: Bristol Ladies Rugby v Worcester

Bristol Ladies will open the RFU Women’s Premiership campaign at Ashton Gate in a unique double header on Sunday, September 6th (5.15pm KO). 

Immediately following Bristol’s Greene King IPA Championship clash with Bedford Blues, the Ladies will face Worcester.

“We couldn’t ask for a better way to kick start our new campaign: the first time we’ve played at Ashton Gate, in front of a Bristol Rugby crowd and against a local rival,” Head Coach LJ Adams told bristolrugby.co.uk.

“All the players are ready to put on an exciting brand of Bristol Rugby which I know will attract new supporters to the women's game.”

The two sides met twice last season, with Bristol winning 36-22 in October, before going down 22-5 at the Portway in the return fixture.

Worcester run out a strong squad including recent England centurion Rocky Clark MBE and fellow international star Ceri Large, with previous Rugby League World Cup winner Lisa Campbell also included in the squad.
Bristol welcome England No 8 Sarah Hunter into the fold, with fellow World Cup winner Amber Reed also starting. 

 
Team: Caryl Thomas, Clara Nielson, Abbie Parsons, Kate Newton, Amelia Buckland-Hurry, Rachel Taylor, Izzy Noel-Smith, Sarah Hunter, Sian Moore, Amber Reed, Courtney Bishop, Claire Molloy, Tilly Vaughan-Fowler, Jenny Fotheringham, Sydney Gregson. Replacements Georgia Bradley and Daisy Travers. 

The game is free entry for supporters, so be sure to stay and support the Ladies in action.
