Two Lichfield RUFC players have been included in the starting line-up for England Women’s Nations Cup opener.

Emily Scarratt and Sarah Beale will start against the USA in Toronto this evening at 11.30pm (BST), but the other Lichfield player in the 26-woman squad, Sarah Hunter, misses out.

Following their opener England will face France, South Africa and Canada.

England coach Gary Street said:

“The Nations Cup is a great opportunity to play quality opposition. Our preparations have been excellent and the USA will be a fantastic test. We are expecting a tough physical contest as part of this four game tournament but this will give us an ideal build up towards the Rugby World Cup in London next year.”
