The number eight starts in place of the suspended Rownita Marston and Jenny Hesketh replaces Grace Crompton (concussion) on the wing, as Dave Ward makes two changes from last weekend’s narrow defeat.

Marston was given a three-week ban after being cited for a dangerous tackle in last weekend’s match.

On the bench, Wales second row Talia John is named on the bench, alongside England U20 international Gabriella Nigrelli.
