Women’s Six Nations and England Team

Women's Six Nations and England Team

A year ago’s competition smashed records for attendances and broadcasting figures and there remains a phosphorescence, a half year on from the World Cup. There have been three distinct victors of the title in the previous three years and the persevering picture of the 2017 competition is a champ takes-all fantastic pummel standoff.

Begin to expose what’s underneath, in any case, and all isn’t exactly as blushing as it appears.

Sevens throws a shadow over a competition that battles for the sort of consideration stood to the Women’s World Cup, running simultaneously as it does with the men’s installations. For sure, while NatWest acted the hero to support the men’s competition, the ladies’ opposition still does not have one.

Britain’s Sarah Hunter started up for Six Nations by World Cup anguish

Six England players who completed as sprinters up in the World Cup will miss the side’s opener against Italy on Sunday in view of their association in the Sydney leg of the world sevens. Likewise, Jess Breach, the Harlequins wing who scored 11 tries in her initial two Tests in the fall, was in Australia as opposed to at Bisham Abbey getting ready for the Six Nations.

England – reigning champions

The Red Roses are rebuilding after the 2017 World Cup, with many top players unavailable as they are back on sevens contracts.

Ranked second in the world behind New Zealand, they are favourites after their run to the World Cup final, in which they lost to the Black Ferns.

However, without the likes of Emily Scarratt or Natasha Hunt, expect new faces like Abigail Dow and Shaunagh Brown to start making the headlines.

15. Ellie Kildunne (Gloucester-Hartpury, 3 caps)
