🏉 England continue their Women’s Six Nations defence with a Round 4 visit of Wales to Twickenham Stoop. Kick-off is at 12.05pm and tickets are available.
England Women enjoyed a rugby union campaign to remember in 2019 achieving a Grand Slam in the Women’s Six Nations in the spring, before finishing the year in style with a 60-3 demolition of Italy – which included 10 tries – to end their November Quilter Internationals unbeaten. A sequence of results that saw the Red Roses extend their winning streak at home to 17 matches.
Speaking ahead of this year’s Women’s Six Nations England head coach Simon Middleton said: “The Six Nations is an integral part of our season. Last year we played some excellent stuff and were rewarded with a Grand Slam. We will be looking to move those performances up to another level this time around and hopefully that will bring us the outcome we want and another Championship.
“We’re also pleased to be returning to The Stoop. We’ve had some fantastic occasions there and it’s always a good game against Wales. It’d be fantastic to see another record crowd at The Stoop.”
When England played Wales last year it was the Red Roses who took the spoils coming away from Cardiff Arms Park with a thumping 51-12 victory. That said Wales rallied to end their Women’s Six Nations campaign with back-to-back victories against Scotland and Ireland.
England will start as heavy favourites on home soil – can Wales stop them in their tracks and cause a major surprise? All road lead to Twickenham Stoop to find out.
One to watch: Top scorer in last season’s Women’s Six Nations, England’s Jess Breach will be looking to impress at The Stoop where she plays in the Premier 15s for Harlequins Women.
