Your News Five newcomers in South West Women's Senior team to face London & South East at Newbury RFC on Sunday (26th)

The South West Women’s Senior side to face the London & South East at Newbury RFC this Sunday (Feb.26), 2-30pm, as part of the RFUW’s Divisional Programme, includes five players making their South West debuts.

Flanker Megan Oaten was due to play in the previously postponed match against the Midlands and will start on Sunday while there’s also a place in the second-row for Henley’s Liz Lennox.

Exeter University’s loose-head prop Poppy Davis starts for the first time as does England U20 and Penryn hooker Charlie Notman while Bristol’s Lauren Therrin comes in on the wing.

“It’s a tough ask for the girls,” admits Kevin Moggridge, the South West RFUW’s Divisional Talent Development Officer. “London won it last year and there’s a lot of Premiership players in their side as well as players with international experience.”

“But it’s the sort of challenge we need and it’s in these kind of games the players need to test themselves.”

South West Senior Women: Kate Hancock (Plymouth/Devon); Mary–Anne Gittings (UWIC/Gloucs), Sally Tuson (Bristol/Somerset), Daryl Poole (Saracens/Herts), Lauren Therrin (Bristol/Somerset); Sarah Holloway (Bath/Somerset), Sian Moore (Bristol/Somerset - c); Poppy Davis (Exeter Uni/Devon), Charlie Notman (Penryn/Cornwall), Kate Newton (Bristol/Somerset); Liz Lennox (Henley/Oxon), Zoe Saynor (Exeter Uni/Devon); Kayleigh Winsor (Cheltenham/Gloucs), Megan Oaten (Bristol/Gloucs), Poppy Cleall (Bristol/Somerset). Reps:- Clara Nielson (North Tawton/Devon), Marcassus Gaelle (Newbury/Berkshire), Rebecca Hughes (Bristol/Somerset), Kelly Wallis (Buckingham Swans/Bucks), Louise Dennis (Worcester/Gloucs), Rachel Bennett (Bath/Somerset), Jessica Irvine (Bracknell/Berks).
