Alba Ovale – 2017

Emily Scott, apertura delle Red Roses, sarà costretta a saltare la Women’s Rugby World Cup per un infortunio rimediato durante l’ultima settimana di preparazione per la massima competizione iridata. Al suo posto è stata convocata l’avanti Poppy Cleall, che vanta 12 caps e ha preso parte a tutte le gare dell’ultimo 6 Nations chiuso dall’Inghilterra con il Grand Slam.

L’esperta tallonatrice, Vicky Fleetwood, si è anch’essa infortunata ma, pur non partendo per l’Irlanda con il resto del gruppo, resta parte della squadra dell’Inghilterra per la Women’s Rugby World Cup e raggiungerà le compagne più tardi, molto probabilmente a torneo iniziato.

Simon Middleton, head coach delle Red Roses, ha detto al sito ufficiale della RFU che ‘while it’s disappointing for Emily, we know she will rehab diligently working closely with our medical team over the coming weeks and we hope to have her fit and ready on standby if required later in the tournament. With Vicky remaining in England for the time being, we have opted to call up Poppy, who offers us a bit more balance in the forwards. We have full confidence in Poppy, who has been training in the wider squad on a full-time basis as part of our Rugby World Cup preparations.
