Reed and Bern named in Red Roses squad

Bristol Bears Women duo Amber Reed and Sarah Bern have been included in Simon Middleton’s 32-player squad for the upcoming Six Nations.

The Red Roses begin their campaign against France in Pau this weekend (Sunday, February 2nd, 12:30pm), before travelling to Glasgow to face Scotland Sunday, February 10th, 12:10pm).

Middleton’s side then return to Doncaster for a third time as they welcome Ireland (Sunday, February 23rd, 12:45pm)  before taking on Wales at Harlequins’ Twickenham Stoop, (Saturday, March 7th, 12:05pm).

The reigning champions then travel to an Italian side who finished runners-up last year as they head to Padova on Sunday, March 15th (1:30pm).

Simon Middleton said: “We’ve named a squad that certainly reflects not only the immense experience in the English women’s game but also some of the outstanding young talent that we are now seeing emerge from the Tyrrells Premier 15s.

“In terms of the overall squad, we are looking forward to seeing how this group, especially those who have emerged over the last 18 months, take the next step onto more senior roles and are pushing to be starters. 

“We are looking forward to getting out to France which is always a great contest and starting our campaign in Pau."
