Reed named in Red Roses squad for Canada clash

Amber Reed has been named amongst the replacements for the Red Roses’ second game in the 2019 Women’s Super Series against Canada.

England Women will take on Canada on Sunday, July 7th (1:00am BST) at the Chula Vista Elite Athlete Training Center.

Simon Middleton’s side will be looking to make it two wins from two after the Red Roses began the competition with a 38-5 victory over USA, while Canada were beaten 20-35 by New Zealand in the first round but responded with 36-19 win over France in round two when England had a bye.

“I think Canada have got the competition going with their performance against France as I don’t think many people expected them to win,” said Middleton.

“They play very differently now to what they used to, and they play to their strengths which is that physical nature. They’re really organised, come at you in attack in a very specific manner and can be very difficult to get the ball off. They have also grown their kicking game which proved to be very effective against both New Zealand and France and France so it’s going to be a massive challenge.

“This game is about taking the things we’ve done in training onto the field. It feels like quite a while since we played our first game but we’re now really ready to go.”

England Women squad in full:

15. Sarah McKenna, 14. Carys Williams 13. Millie Wood, 12. Emily Scott, 11. Kelly Smith, 10. Zoe Harrison, 9. Claudia Macdonald;, 1. Vickii Cornborough, 2. Lark Davies , 3. Hannah Botterman , 4. Catherine O’Donnell, 5. Zoe Aldcroft, 6. Sarah Beckett , 7. Jo Brown , 8. Sarah Hunter
