Team news: Bristol Ladies Rugby vs Worcester Valkyries

Bristol Ladies travel to Sixways Stadium on Saturday as they face Worcester Valkryies in the second round of the Tyrrell’s Premier 15’s competition (KO 2pm).

Kris De Scossa’s side will be looking to bounce back from a narrow 24-31 opening day defeat at the hands of Richmond Women’s FC. 

Amelia Buckland-Hurry continues to captain the Bristol Ladies from the second row, in a starting line-up that has a total of six changes from last week. 

There is an exciting new half-back partnership in the form of Brooke Bradley and Lucy Attwood, who are given a chance from the off this week after impressing from the bench.

In the centres, there is also a new pairing as Pheobe Murray partners Lagi Tuima, who will be looking to replicate the form shown in her debut last week in which she scored two tries. 

Jessie Hood comes in at loose-head prop as Sasha Acheson drops to the bench.

Abby Flemming finds herself moved to the number eight position with Daisy Mayes starting at open-side flanker.

Becky Hughes comes in on the wing and replaces Charlotte Holland, who will look to make an impact when she comes on as a replacement.
