Red Roses Autumn Internationals

Rugby Union

(W) England v Canada

🏉 StoneX Stadium is the place to be this afternoon as England take on Canada in the second of two Red Roses Autumn Internationals.  See below for the latest ticket information. 

A two-match home series in the Red Roses Autumn Internationals starts for England at Sandy Park on Saturday 23 September.  Then all eyes will be on StoneX Stadium on Saturday 30 September for a fixture which concludes England’s preparations for the inaugural WXV tournament in New Zealand this autumn.

StoneX Stadium last hosted a Red Roses match in November 2018.  The world’s most-capped women’s player, Sarah Hunter, was on the scoresheet in a 57-5 victory over USA.  

Now England Women transition coach, Hunter commented: “StoneX Stadium has fantastic facilities and is a great venue to play rugby.

“The passion and appetite for women’s rugby in this country has vastly grown since our last match at Saracens.  We hope that growth will continue in front ofa big north London crowd against strong opposition.”

Lucy Wray, Saracens Chief Executive, added: “Everyone at Saracens is incredibly excited to host a Red Roses international match at StoneX Stadium.

“It will be amazing to see our own Red Roses representing their country against Canada, where Saracens are also represented by our recent signings Emma Taylor, McKinley Hunt and Sophie de Goede.

Will Six Nations champions England justify their favourites tag or can Canada spring a surprise?  All will be revealed in north London this afternoon.

🏉 Kick-off is at  3pm.
