Six Bristol Bears Women named in England U20 squad

Jo Yapp has selected Lagi Tuima alongside five other Bristol Bears Women for their summer tour to Canada. 

Lagi Tuima, Lucy Attwood, Hollie Cunningham, Lillian Stoeger-Goddard, Ellie Mulhearn and Pheobe Murray will all make the trip across the Atlantic in August. 

Tuima, has represented the Red Roses at senior level this past year but has been selected for this age-range tour and will provide experience in what will be a tough playing environment. 

England U20 will face Canada U20 twice and USA U20 once throughout the three-match-series with all three games available live online via www.rugby.ca.

The matches will be hosted at Acadia University (Wolfville) and Wanderers Grounds (Halifax) on Friday 10 August, Tuesday 14 August and Saturday 18 August.

England Women U20 head coach Jo Yapp said: “This tour to Canada is a fantastic opportunity for us. It allows us to build on the time we’ve already had together this season as a squad and continue developing the players that are coming through the women’s pathway.

"Getting to play three away matches, including against Canada in Canada will be a tough challenge, but also an exciting opportunity for this group of players. We can’t wait to get out there and know this tour, like any international one, will offer a great learning experience for the squad.”
