Edimburgo – Shade Munro, head coach della Nazionale Femminile Scozzese, ha annunciato oggi i nomi delle ragazze convocate per l’ormai imminente 6 Nations di categoria, che le Dark Blues apriranno venerdì 3 febbraio in casa – al Broadwood Stadium di Cumbernauld – contro l’Irlanda.

Louise McMillan (Hillhead Jordanhill), Sarah Bonar e Rachel Malcom (entrambe Lichfield) Lucy Park (Murrayfield Wanderers), che hanno conquistato il loro primo cap durante il doppio spareggio/qualificazione per la prossima WRWC perso contro la Spagna in novembre sono ancora nel gruppo, mentre ritornano i due centri Centres Helen Nelson (Murrayfield Wanderers) e Lisa Thomson (Edinburgh University) che mancavano dallo scorso 6 Nations, così come l’ala Rhona Lloyd (Edinburgh University).
Lisa Martin, apertura delle Murrayfield Wanderers che domenica si sono riconfermate campionesse di Scozia, sarà ancora il capitano.
The Women’s Six Nations is a great platform to develop the squad and benchmark progress as we work towards closing the gap with world-class nations. 
We’ve added more training camps and competitive games this season to better prepare both the new and experienced players for the task ahead,” ha detto Munro al sito ufficiale della Scottish Rugby.
The structures Scottish Rugby has put in place to support players and release their full potential are also making a difference and we took huge positives from our two matches against Spain in autumn. 
We competed for the whole 80 minutes in both games and developed our defence and attack. The players took confidence from that because they can see the improvement. In this tournament, our focus is really on us. There’s no doubt we have progressed in a number of areas, but there is a lot more we can do to improve.
La Scozia Femminile scenderà a Londra domenica 22 gennaio per un ritiro di tre giorni, che si chiuderà con un test-match contro le Aylesford Bulls – e non, come erroneamente comunicato precedentemente su questo blog, le Harlequin Ladies.
