Team news: Bristol Ladies vs Worcester Valkyries

Kim Oliver makes four changes as Bristol Ladies face Worcester Valkyries before the New Year (7pm KO).

Bristol Ladies will be looking to build on the momentum of back-to-back away wins in the Tyrrell’s Premier 15’s competition and see out 2017 in style, at Cleve RFC on Saturday.

Pheobe Murray comes into the starting fifteen on the wing in place of Cat McNaney, meaning Sydney Gregson, who bagged herself a brace against Richmond moves into the full-back position. 

Elinor Snowsill has also earned herself an opportunity to start in the fly-half position for the game against the Valkyries, whilst Amber Reed captain’s the side from outside-centre with Lucy Attwood moving to partner Reed in the centres. 

One change in the back row allows Hollie Cunningham to start at blind-side flanker in place of Poppy Leitch. 

The final change to the starting line-up sees Clara Nielson come in to the front-row to start at hooker. 

Sue Neumann, Daisie Mayes and Jess Thomas come into the squad amongst the replacements alongside Carys Phillips to make up the forwards in the match day squad. 

Rhi Parker will look to bring extra energy and pace to the game when she is introduced from the replacements along with the skilful Lagi Tuima and speedster Cat McNaney.
